In campus planning, we look at the big picture. We conceptualize and consider how we can best shape the built environment.
Campus planning provides a framework that guides future development of our built environment – the buildings, open spaces, transportation and circulation, and infrastructure improvements – to maximize the effective use of University property and keep the campus functioning effectively. Campus planning is coordinated by two teams: Capital Planning, and Physical and Environmental Planning. Their functions include space program development, funding analyses, obtaining project approvals with the Office of the President, navigating environmental regulations to minimize impact, and communicating with campus and neighbors about projects.
UC's system-wide capital program is driven by campuses’ academic and strategic plans. The CPF is updated annually and developed based on the near-term needs of each campus for buildings and physical infrastructure.
