Campus Master Plans

Board of Regents (BOR) Policy 05.12.030 requires a campus master plan (CMP) for each campus.  A CMP is a planning document that supports the campus academic, strategic, and capital plans, providing a framework for their implementation.  A CMP identifies the existing and preferred campus land uses, buildings, landscapes, open space, pedestrian and vehicular circulation systems, and conceptual plans for development and improvement.

The primary task of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Master Planning Committee (MPC), an advisory committee to the chancellor, is to assist in the implementation and updating of UAF's CMP.  The BOR policy provides that the CMP be reviewed and updated on a five to seven year cycle.

Draft campus master plan presented at public forum

UAF staff and consultants presented concepts for the draft campus master plan at public forums last week. The draft plan identifies facilities improvements to the student life experience, opportunities to modernize classroom and living facilities, and ideas to create more collaborative spaces on campus. This plan is a work in progress and will be updated on this site as the process continues. Final acceptance by the Board of Regents is expected in early 2019.

Fairbanks Campus Master Plan

The CMP for the Fairbanks campus is designed to guide and shape the physical environment of the UAF main campus and to present a model for planning throughout UAF's branch campuses and remote facilities.  The original Fairbanks CMP was adopted in 2002.  At its June 2-3, 2010 meeting, the BOR approved the new 2010 UAF Campus Master Plan.
