About the Campus Master Plan

In early 2015, the University of Washington launched a planning process to create the 2018 Seattle Campus Master Plan (CMP). The project team was tasked with writing a plan that responded to the long term vision for the campus as well as a 10-year conceptual plan as required by the City University Agreement. The team looked at anticipated enrollment growth, increased teaching and research demands, partnerships with government and industry partners, future transportation needs, economic growth, and the needs of the University Community. 

Working in collaboration with an Advisory Committee, Working Group, and multiple stakeholders, the team created a plan that integrates the strategic goals, academic and service missions of the University, and has created a plan that will guide the physical development of the campus over the next 10 years.  

The Draft 2018 Seattle Campus Master Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement was published October 5, 2016, and was followed by a 45 day public comment period that ended November 21, 2016
