Long-range development of campus is guided by plans that detail future land use,
building sites, open space, and other campus features. These plans may refer to the entire campus,
campus sub-districts, or properties off the main campus.
Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) policy requires a comprehensive campus plan to guide the long-range physical
development of the UA main campus. The current plan was adopted by ABOR in 2003 and updated in 2009.
The 2009 update of the Comprehensive Campus Plan does not supersede the 2003 Plan, but is a companion document
which reflects recent changes to the physical campus as well as addresses new institutional directions and opportunities.
The goal of the University of Arizona Comprehensive Campus Plan is to provide the best environment for teaching,
research, and service to the State of Arizona. The creation of a university campus involves the balance and weaving of
interconnected and interdependent issues, including the relationship between teaching, research and service, utility infrastructure,
transportation, circulation and parking, building placement, sustainability, pedestrian circulation, neighborhood concerns, economic development,
housing and student life, and inspirational open space. Successful interconnectedness of these elements is essential to creating a great campus.
