Building Standards

Building Standards are the basis for which all the campus buildings are built.  These documents are constantly evolving as the campus develops new standards and building requirements change through the years. Because we strive to update our requirements to the best possible standards, the documents are not to be use without direction and approval from Planning, Design and Construction.  They are for reference only.  Below are some of the building standards that the CSU San Marcos campus utilizes. We are currently updating our standards to reflect the new Specifications Master Format.
