Princeton issues planning framework to guide campus development
Princeton University has issued a planning framework to guide campus development over the next 10 years in the context of potential needs and developments over the next 30 years.
The framework proposes locations for several priority projects that were identified in a strategic planning framework that the University adopted in January 2016. These include a new residential college or colleges to permit the University to expand its undergraduate student body by 10 percent, new and improved facilities to support teaching and research in engineering and environmental studies, and space to accommodate academic partnerships with the corporate, government and nonprofit sectors in an expanded innovation ecosystem.
The framework identifies opportunities to improve the already developed portions of the University’s campus, with particular attention to its lands east of Washington Road where new facilities for engineering and environmental studies would be located and a number of new walkways and other improvements are proposed. The framework also proposes the development of a new Lake Campus on lands south of Lake Carnegie that the University purchased almost a century ago.
