Campus Planning

Campus Planning is responsible for campus master planning, capital, facilities and space planning, transportation planning, campus GIS, dig safe, real estate management and design oversight of all University construction. The challenge of our task is to deliver the vision of the University leaders, respond to the needs of individual campus users, while preserving and enhancing the character and integrity of the campus.

Campus Planning maintains an extensive amount of data regarding real property, utilities, space, transportation systems, as well as priorities for renovations and improvements for annual and capital budgeting.  This information is updated at least annually to reflect the changing conditions and needs of the campus, and is available to campus constituents through various reports, maps, and floor plans.  This data helps guide the University's decisions for planning initiatives and specific construction projects.

Space Management

Is a core component of the Campus Planning group focused on space needs and opportunities across campus.  This is accomplished by working with university entities to define their needs, explore options, and offer recommendations.   Maintaining the FAMIS space data base and contributing to the Annual SAARC Improvement Process are essential to responding to specific need requests as well as providing an overview of all space needs to campus leadership.  Decisions related to space assignments are vetted with SAARC, a standing advisory committee.  For more information about University space resources please contact David Clark, Space Management Specialist, at 603.862.0161 or
