The 2017 Campus Master Plan seeks to enhance the student experience, increase spatial connectivity and interdisciplinary opportunities, and link buildings via a cohesive landscape.
This campus master plan guides future campus capacity in the long term, and identifies solutions to near-term campus challenges related to growth, facilities conditions, and programmatic needs.
In just over four years since the completion of the master plan, this rapidly growing district is home to 200 companies, over $500 million in investment, and 3,600 new jobs.
During five phases, this update will support the strategic plan and serve as a guide to improve the current Athens campus while creating a vision for the new Dublin campus.
This vision and concept plan builds off of the Arboretum’s success, and incorporates a new art museum, STEM museum, and performance space.
Planning and real estate services determine how to grow and strengthen university presence in the community.
The plan enhances outstanding scholarship and educational opportunities through integration, proximity, flexible adaptation, and faculty growth.
The plan creates a transformative framework for growth, including doubling campus square footage while becoming more green and pedestrian-friendly.
In a city with prestigious universities, a strong arts community, and a friendly start-up environment, Providence is ripe for an innovation district.
Drivers of the 20-year campus master plan include academic discovery, meaningful connections with the community, and incorporating natural elements into the campus aesthetic.
This plan provides a holistic assessment of housing and facilities, including analysis of existing conditions, market demand analysis, and evaluation of existing space.
