Campus planning includes the campus master plan and the frequent interactions between the city of Laramie and the community relating to campus property development.
The campus master plan organizes and presents a matrix of useful background information, crucial issues and development criteria to guide the future development of the campus. Campus entries, edges, districts, circulation paths and activity nodes are primary issues addressed by the master plan. The historic development, protection of the historic qualities, sense of place, and flexibility for future development are continued goals of the plan. The academic core, research, athletic/recreation, housing/residential, administrative, and open space define the primary districts of the university. The master plan is driven by the university mission as well as academic, support services, capital facilities and athletic facilities planning of the university. The master plan is a dynamic document considering the long-term development of the campus, usually more than a 10 year term.
The frequent interaction with the city of Laramie and the community assures the university plan is integrated into the planning and development of the community and the community plans are integrated into the university plans. Circulation paths, edges, districts and utility infrastructure are some of the most frequent issues of interaction.
The Campus Master Plan contains documents, data and recommendations on the future physical direction of the university of Wyoming.
