University of California Criteria and Standards for New Campus Location and Site Selection.
Bechtel Corp., San Francisco, CA.
Changes in California public higher education policy by the legislature in 1960 and the Regents of the University of California in 1966 are incorporated in new criteria for the establishment of new campuses. Criteria are based upon three methods of grouping campus facilities: high, medium, and low density. All new campuses are to be general institutions offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs with a growth rate per campus of 500-1,000 students per year to a maximum of 15,000 to 27,500 students. Major planning classifications are concerned with site evaluation and campus development. Criteria for site evaluation include land use, traffic circulation, university impact upon the community, utilities, climate and topography, availability and cost. Criteria for general development include campus population mixes and ratios and basic area requirements expressed in square feet, ratios and acreages for instructional facilities, housing, parking, athletics, research, utilities, recreation, and reserve lands. Tables of specific square foot and acreage standards by type of facility are included. (RLP)
