10-year Development

The facilities that appear below are candidates for construction within ten years, but it is probable that only a few of them will be constructed in that period, and that others not listed will join their ranks. It is understood that this list may change to meet with campus needs as the Master Plan moves forward.

This list of possible new facilities provides a basis for assessing future needs in each of the campus systems that are analyzed in the framework plan (explore Plan Specifics to learn more). These buildings also give an indication of where in the campus sites will be needed. They are arranged alphabetically by college and division.
