25-Year Campus Master Plan
UMass Boston’s 25-year Master Plan (scroll down to download) is the physical realization of the university’s strategic vision: becoming a model student-centered, urban public research university of the 21st century. The recommendations of this bold and innovative master plan serve as a flexible blueprint and framework for a campus infrastructure and landscape that reflects UMass Boston’s highest academic ambitions, its urban mission, and its commitment to enhancing the student experience and improving connections with its neighbors.
Phase One of the master plan (2008 through 2017) calls for more than $750 million in new facilities and infrastructure construction on the campus including the following priority projects:
- Integrated Sciences Complex
- General Academic Building No. 1
- McCormack Hall and Wheatley Hall Renovations
- Utility Corridor and Roadway Relocation
- HarborWalk Improvements and Shoreline Stabilization
Within the next couple of years, campus planners expect to begin detailed planning on additional Phase One projects including the development of a second general academic building, and the demolition of the Science Center and substructure.
The Office of Campus Master Planning seeks and welcomes the input and feedback from the many constituents – from students, faculty, and staff to alumni, friends, neighbors, and visitors who contribute to the university’s success. This is central to the planning process. As we begin to implement the campus master plan, we invite you to review work accomplished, and to take an active role in project planning and implementation by attending open meetings, meeting with the campus master planning team, or by offering comments, feedback, or questions via email.
“Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir the blood and probably will not be realized. Make big plans. Aim high in hope and work.” – Daniel Burnham, architect and urban planner
