Campus Master Plan

The campus master planning Web site is a record of work done in 2000 and 2001. 

This master plan has been the basis for the major projects accomplished since then, and continues to guide thinking about future developments and changes at the University.


The Brandeis Office of Capital Projects managed and coordinated major construction and renovation projects at the university from 2004 through 2010. The office engaged in a broad range of activities, from planning and feasibility studies to construction of major new projects.  The management process for capital projects changed in 2010: planning and schematic design are now managed by the Office of Planning and Institutional Research, and completion of design and construction are managed by the Office of Facilities Services.  The two offices closely collaborate throughout the life of a project, including in the planning phases, to ensure a seamless process conforming with best practices.

With regard to capital projects, the mission of the Office of Capital Projects (through 2010), and now, the mission of the two offices that collaborate on capital projects, is to ensure that projects approved by the University's Board of Trustees and senior leadership are carried out on time and on budget, with sensitivity and concern for the needs of end-users and the University community as a whole. Environmental responsibility is a central focus of our design and construction process. Brandeis is a charter signatory to the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment and, consistent with that commitment, our goal has advanced from our earlier commitment to create projects at a LEED silver (or greater) equivalent standard to the present commitment to create projects at a LEED gold (or greater) equivalent standard.
