 Master PlanOpen SpacesAccessNew BuildingsHome



The campus circulation system includes easier vehicular access, parking and pedestrian connections. Since the University serves many commuters, the plan focuses on regional and campus streets, as well as parking. Visitors to the campus will be greeted by clearly marked portals and new signage upon their arrival. Parking will be consolidated in convenient locations through the construction of three new parking decks, each located within a five-minute walk of any point on campus. The plan also calls for the closing of two existing streets to allow for more direct and pleasant pedestrian and bicycle connections throughout the campus.
