The University of Arizona Campus Master Plan
Welcome to the University of Arizona Master Plan website! The University of Arizona community is invited to participate in the exploration of how we will continue to guide future campus development.
The planning process is developing master plans for both the Main Campus in Tucson and the Sierra Vista Campus. The master plans will support the University’s Strategic Plan and build upon the best of our existing campuses while identifying opportunities for new space to support the future leaders of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
We invite you to explore the website and review the schedule, upcoming and past events, focus areas, committees and focus groups. We also welcome feedback on the process and plans.
The University of Arizona Master Plans will provide guidance for optimal development of the physical and functional campus in support of the University’s Strategic Plan priorities – anticipating future trends and priorities while providing the flexibility to adapt to continuous change.
Development of the Master Plan is led by the University of Arizona’s Planning, Design & Construction team, working closely with Ayers Saint Gross, a consulting firm that has successfully developed master plans for dozens of universities across the country. Ayers Saint Gross’s previous work on the University of Arizona’s Tucson and Phoenix campuses has provided a broad understanding of our physical, cultural and historical assets.
The Master Plan team has conducted numerous studies and workshops relating to academic and research space needs, campus gateways and edges, transportation, utilities, housing, sustainability, student success, arts and athletics facilities, and public-private partnerships. The University’s infrastructure management, space planning and GIS systems are being used for Master Plan analysis and presentation, which will put the University in full control of Master Plan updates and improvements as needs and conditions change in the future.
