The 2019 University Master Plan, guided by The University’s strategic framework, is a strong collective vision for the next chapter of the University’s continual evolution. This forward-looking Master Plan will drive future campus investments that support strategic change and innovation to address today’s complex challenges.
Developed through an inclusive five-phase process, this collective vision will guide implementation of over 3.3 million gross square feet of new construction in a 15-year planning horizon and 1.9 million gross square feet of major renovation. The Master Plan identifies long-term development sites that allow future flexibility and informs broad improvements to campus systems identified in the plan.
The Master Plan is guided by three big ideas that will drive transformative physical planning campuswide: welcome, connections, and hubs. The three big ideas and physical planning strategies can and should be realized in projects of all sizes to strengthen what is enduringly Carolina.
