The University of Ottawa holds a prominent place nationally and internationally as one of Canada’s leading universities. Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, it is a key contributor to the City’s economy, culture and quality of life. The University of Ottawa Campus Master Plan will guide the evolution of the campus by providing a framework for the development of buildings, open spaces and infrastructure to create an inviting and memorable campus.

“The uOttawa plan is distinguished by giving character to the neighbourhood by reinforcing campus identity, protecting some of the campus defining spaces while allowing for mixed use synergies to infiltrate the campus.” – Carol Phillips

“The Master Plan for this campus works hard to enhance the University’s built form/space identity, create a sustainable precinct and meaningfully integrate with the broader city context, while reconciling challenging site conditions.” – Gordon Stratford
