CAMPUS DEVELOPMENT GUIDELINES

CAMPUS DEVELOPMENT GUIDELINES

OVERVIEW


The Campus Development Guidelines were prepared to present the University's preferences and criteria for the design and construction of campus facilities and landscape.

The goal of the design guidelines is to improve the overall aesthetic character and visual unity of the Amherst campus as a whole. They represent the University's commitment to future development that reinforce the University's Mission, and support a more cohesive, attractive, productive and sustainable campus environment.
