Campus Master Plan (2019-Present)
Sheridan has initiated an exciting process to develop a bold, innovative and comprehensive Campus Master Plan that will provide a road map to transform the built environment over the next 30 years. The Campus Master Plan aspires to provide Sheridan students, faculty and staff on all three campuses with inspiring spaces to learn, teach, work, collaborate and innovate. Sheridan has engaged a multi-disciplinary consultant team, led by Urban Strategies Inc., to conduct the Campus Master Plan and related engagement process. The Master Plan should address challenges such as aging infrastructure and facility conditions, the replacement of facilities that no longer meet user needs or accessibility standards or will have reached the end of a useful life span within the planning horizon, and the need to enhance student life and learning experiences both within and external to academic facilities.
Sheridan’s 3 campuses each have a different built form and organizational structure in terms of the location of buildings, open spaces, circulation and transportation routes; each campus is located in a distinct municipal context that will require a unique and tailored strategy to effectively guide change.
