Design Standards

Design standards are in the process of being developed for building exteriors with the goal of unifying the campus through design.  These standards will provide UIC space users, project managers and external professional service consultants with design options that they could select when undergoing a renovation or new project at UIC.

The Office of the Campus Architect is responsible for the interpretation of these standards and reserves the right to deny or modify any proposed deviation from the Standards.

Interior Signage Standards

The Interior Signage Standards  were developed by the Office of the Campus Architect
(OCA) per the request of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services and the
Vice Chancellor for Public and Government Affairs to refresh and unify room identification
and wayfinding signage across campus interior spaces.

In addition to an updated look, the new signage standard provides guidelines
for how new signage is implemented and located.
