Campus Master Plan

Master Plan Update

Towson University’s campus master plan is updated on a five-year cycle, both as a matter of good practice and a requirement of the University System of Maryland. The master plan update confirms that the overall framework and long-term vision of the master plan still meet the university’s current and projected enrollment and program growth initiatives. The update also documents any institutional changes that occurred following the master plan, such as the completion of new building, landscape and infrastructure projects.

The university began updating its campus master plan in late 2014. The phased update process was a collaborative and participatory effort that included more than 65 internal and external focus group meetings and open forums.  We met with more than 600 students, faculty, staff and community members to obtain their feedback to help shape the master plan update.

Update Process

As indicated in the schedule below, the master plan update was developed in three phases. The first phase, known as the observations phase, included the collection of data and the assembly of extensive outreach meetings to gather input from external and internal campus constituents. The second phase involved the review and documentation of the recommendations from the 2009 master plan. Based on this review, and the input and data collected in the observations phase, recommended updates to the master plan were developed and presented to internal and external constituents for feedback. In the final phase of the process, that feedback was incorporated into a draft of the final master plan update which was presented for approval to the University System of Maryland Board of Regents.
