Design Manual Revision and Variance Process

Work-flow of the planning and facilities management office's Design Manual Revision and Variance Process

The Georgetown Design Manual and Facilities Standards was created to provide standardized requirements for design and facility projects happening across all Georgetown University campuses in the United States.

The diagram above details our revision and variance process for said the manual.


Manual reviews happen on an annual basis. The team compiles all approved revisions and variances, and publishes them in the Fourth Quarter of the year.

You absolutely can! Please fill out our change submission form (opens in new tab), and your proposed change submission will be reviewed by the committee. If it’s passed, it will be included for publishing in the next manual.
