The Future of Our Campus

The previous Campus Master Plan (PDF [Portable Document Format File] ) was issued in July 2003, and was later supplemented by a North Campus Transit Oriented Development Plan (PDF [Portable Document Format File] ), completed in June 2009, and a Campus Site Development Plan (PDF [Portable Document Format File] ), published in June 2010. Guided by the president’s Strategic Plan, our latest effort, Campus Master Plan Update 2018 (PDF [Portable Document Format File] ) includes the more salient elements of the previous plans and incorporates input from the current campus community, as well as our neighbors in the cities of Richardson and Dallas.

Page, a multidisciplinary architecture and engineering firm, provided a team of planners and architects to facilitate the process of creating our new Campus Master Plan Update. The final product was intended to be a useful and interactive guide to the future composition of the University’s campus.

Two groups of campus community members were initially involved in the management and development of this plan. The Working Committee was tasked with coordinating the various elements of the campus and surrounding communities to obtain and share information. They scheduled open forums to achieve this objective. They also developed presentations in conjunction with Page which were made to the Executive Committee for their review and guidance. The Executive Committee provided the direction for the content to be included in the draft Campus Master Plan Update, which the president presented to the UT System Board of Regents for their approval. Our latest Master Plan Update was approved in the fall of 2018.
