The University of Richmond campus has long been noted for its natural beauty. The Collegiate Gothic architecture and sweeping landscape of the 350-acre campus are defining and celebrated characteristics.
As the institution approaches the 100th anniversary of its relocation to the current campus, the UR community has crafted a plan to ensure the physical space evolves along with UR’s changing needs—the 2011 Campus Master Plan.
Throughout an extensive research process, hundreds of faculty, staff, students, alumni, trustees, friends, and neighbors had an opportunity to share their insights. Key opportunities for improvement include ease of navigation, a more inviting campus that better reflects community connections, improved athletic and recreation spaces, and integration of more “third places”—gathering areas outside classrooms and residence halls.
With an eye toward protecting the beauty of both the campus and the environment, while also meeting the changing needs of the community and visitors, the University is embarking on an ambitious rethinking of the physical campus over the coming decade.
In the following video, University administrators outline the impact of the plan on business processes and the campus community.
