All proposed major maintenance, renovation, addition or new construction projects related to Student Organization Housing on The University of Alabama campus, regardless of funding source for the project (i.e. UA Borrowed Funds vs. Student Organization Funds), must be submitted to the UA Student Organization Facilities Committee for review prior to the beginning. Student Organizations that wish to undertake a project must follow the Student Organization Construction Project Guidelines, which includes submitting a Student Organization Project Initiation Request Form (PIR) to the Director of Fraternity & Sorority Life at least one week prior to the next regularly scheduled Student Organization Facilities Committee meeting. PIR Review meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month, and special meetings can be called if necessary. Completed PIRs should be submitted to Julie Elmore, Manager of Greek Housing and Properties.
The Student Organization Housing Design Guidelines for Renovation, Addition and New Construction are specific to Student Organization Housing projects and are supplemental to the University’s Design Guidelines and Standards. These guidelines do not supersede or void the requirements contained in the University Design Guidelines, rather this information provides more in depth criteria applicable to Student Housing projects.
