UW 2018 Campus Master Plan & EIS released

The University of Washington’s Seattle Campus Master Plan (and companion environmental impact statement) was released July 5 after months of community-involved planning, comment and revision. The 2018 CMP sets a blueprint for campus growth over the next decade or more to accommodate increases in student enrollment, changes in how classrooms and labs work best for learning and teaching, and efforts to add new open spaces to one of the nation’s most beautiful college campuses.

The release of the plan prompts further review by the City-University Community Advisory Committee and City of Seattle over this summer. Reports from CUCAC and City staff then inform review and decisions by the Seattle Hearing Examiner, the Seattle City Council and the UW Board of Regents. The Hearing Examiner and Council will set schedules for their respective reviews and action. The Hearing Examiner’s review and public hearing could happen in late 2017. The Regional & Community Relations web page will be updated as review process information and dates become available.
