The Campus Master Plan (CMP) is the foundation for University of Florida facilities and land resources for the next ten years and beyond. In a very literal sense, the facilities, lands and infrastructure of the campus are the foundation of the Gator Nation. These are the places that Gators learn, teach, research, and experience the university community and natural Florida environment. The CMP outlines policies for responsible stewardship of land resources and sustainable development that supports the university's mission.
The Campus Master Plan is arranged into “elements”, or chapters, that address facilities in Alachua County including main campus and 13 satellite properties. Each Element contains goals, objectives and policies to guide the future growth of the University. A companion Data and Analysis report contains detailed evaluations for each element as applicable. An Evaluation and Appraisal Report documents progress toward implementing the previous CMP and any changes that are required in the next update.
Campus planning in Florida’s State University System is governed by Chapter 1013.30, Florida Statutes. Florida Board of Governors Regulations, Chapter 21, further detail the minimum requirements of university campus master plans. The University of Florida is committed to implement, maintain and update its CMP using an inclusive and comprehensive approach that goes beyond these minimum requirements to engage the campus community, host community and governmental agencies in the plan development process. Additionally, the University joint committees of LVL, PHBS, PTAC and ULUFPC are charged with overseeing various aspects of master plan implementation and updates. Throughout the CMP development process, the University provides opportunities for public participation that meets and exceeds the statutory requirements. The University also provides its draft CMP updates to various state, local and regional agencies for review as required.
