Facilities Planning and Management is charged with providing the university community with a safe, comfortable, and usable physical environment. This includes ensuring that modifications to that environment comply with all applicable state and local regulations, building codes, Board of Regents, State of Iowa standards, and university standards.

Policy Statement

All physical modifications to university facilities, interior and exterior, must be approved by Facilities Planning and Management. This includes, but is not limited to, remodeling of interior spaces, installation of equipment that requires permanent attachment or connection to building utilities, attachment of items to exterior of buildings, and installation of items on the grounds of campus. Facilities Planning and Management will determine, after consultation with the requester and appropriate university officials, the most appropriate methods of implementing said modifications.
