Working with a team of planning consultants and the university community, University of Maryland Facilities Management is creating a new Facilities Master Plan. The Master Plan serves as a tool to help establish a continuing framework to guide strategic growth and development across campus.

Open Forums

Open forums were held in the spring and fall and are now complete. A summary report will follow.

Record of Outreach

The planning team is reaching out to many groups for input during Phase I. Here is a list of the groups that have participated in the process so far.

2020 Update

The Goals of the Facilities Master Plan are:

  • To establish a physical planning framework that will promote future stewardship, orderly growth, efficient use of capital and operating resources, and appropriate development of available land consistent with the strategic plan, mission, and values of the institution.
  • Be responsive to the institution's current and projected needs and be flexible to accommodate unexpected changes for capital improvements on campus. The plan will be data-driven, inclusive, visionary, and responsive to internal and external stakeholder needs.
  • To develop a comprehensive plan, integrating planned development with utilities infrastructure, site, landscape, sustainability, and multi-modal transportation circulation that will enhance the connectivity of campus facilities and the University’s surrounding communities.

The Process

The entire process is divided into three phases and will take approximately 18 months.

Collect and analyze existing plans, studies, and data. Gather input from campus and surrounding communities.

Phase II: Draft Plan Development, October 2022 - February 2023

Synthesize Phase I data. Develop conceptual plans to address needs outlined and input received in Phase I.

Phase III: Final Plan Approvals, February - June 2023

Incorporate Phase II feedback of concept plans. Develop Final Plan Draft

University and Community Involvement

Because the Master Plan impacts students, faculty, staff as well as the surrounding College Park Community, the Master Planning Team will solicit input through a variety of engagement opportunities, including open forums for university and community stakeholders, discipline-specific work groups and surveys.
