After a tremendous year of listening, planning, testing, and designing, the final Draft University of Guelph Campus Master Plan is now available. Your interest and input has helped to create robust document which will guide the University community in the years to come.
The Plan is an evolution and update to the 2002 Campus Master Plan, reinforcing and building on the many important principles and initiatives identified ten years ago.
The document comprises two parts: Volume One presents the vision and overall campus design directions, which act as a long-term framework for the growth and evolution of campus, as well as a phasing plan and general implementation strategies; Volume Two provides site-specific guidelines and is intended to act as a decision making toolkit for campus planners and administration as they work to achieve both the short- and long-term vision for the campus.
A Campus Master Plan update is a major undertaking and a significant milestone in the University of Guelph’s evolution, and your input has helped to guide the direction the campus will take in the next 50+ years! Thank you!

A Campus Master Plan update is a significant milestone in the university’s evolution and your input is important.
Drop by anytime on Tuesday, October 2 from 2-6pm in the University Centre Courtyard area. Members of the consultant team will be on hand to answer your questions and receive feedback.
If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. We’ll try to get the open house panels uploaded to this site as soon as possible.
Thanks to everyone who came out for the open house for the campus master plan update. We had many participants throughout the afternoon, with a lot of great feedback. If you missed the event but would like to review the open house panels, you can download them in PDF format (14 MB).
Your feedback on the emerging vision is important to us. Comment here on the blog, or get in touch with Gord or me by email or phone. If you’d like, you can respond to the questions we outlined in the open house handout. If you’d like, you can even print off the handout and fax/email/mail it back to us. The open house questions were as follows.
1. Overall, do you feel that the Campus Master Plan Update is headed in the right direction?
2. Have we missed anything important that may influence our campus analysis or the emerging vision?
3. What are your highest priorities for the evolution and growth of the UofG Campus?
4. Do you have any other feedback or questions on what you have seen today?
Finally, members of the project team were interviewed by CFRU at the open house. It was featured on Beyond the Ballot Box, broadcasted on 93.3 FM following the open house. You can listen online at http://www.cfru.ca/recordings/1. Look for the recording on Friday, March 23 at 5 PM. The open house segment starts just before the 50 min mark.
