Master Plan

Building North Carolina's Urban Research University

UNC Charlotte's 2010 Master Plan presents a cohesive, people-oriented campus committed to sustainability, efficiency, and social interaction. The plan focuses on building up the historic campus core of the University with new facilities and improvements that add much-needed density and academic space and give recognizable character to the heart of the campus. Academic residence "villages" support and promote student activities and learning communities to enhance campus life. Thoughtful land use planning preserves and celebrates the range of natural landscapes and forested areas on campus to foster a sense of sustainable growth. It also presents a stronger set of building and infrastructure connections to our surrounding neighbors.

The master plan was the result of an 18-month planning and design process and drew from earlier campus planning exercises that established principles for the University's physical plan.
