Campus Planning and Real Estate

Campus Planning and Real Estate plans campuses and all spaces within to be welcoming, accessible, inclusive, and supportive of the people who use these spaces, so everyone can thrive, excel and feel they belong.


What We Do

Our team ensures that new development and changes to the built environment align with the principles and goals of the Campus Master Plan, and that campus planning is conducted through an integrated approach that ensures the long-term sustainability and management of the University’s architectural, environmental, and cultural resources.

Campus Planning and Real Estate is committed to undertaking land use assessments and strategic space planning, assessing the long term needs based on programmatic and enrollment changes and optimizing space utilization on Queen’s Campus.


Campus Planning and Real Estate offers strategic planning services to all sectors of the University.

Our goal is to help create and maintain a quality learning and work environment, and to do so with important long term planning issues in mind.

Campus Planning

The updated Campus Master Plan (CMP) establishes a vision and framework to guide how the university will physically change over the next 10 to 15 years to accommodate Queen's evolving programs and activities, and in support of the initiative of our faculty, staff and students that makes Queen's a world-class university.

Accessibility, Inclusion and Wellbeing

Facilities is always working toward improving the accessibility of our campus. In support of this, our building directory allows for targeted searches of accessibility features in buildings on campus and provide the most information possible to make navigating and planning easier for Queen's students, staff and visitors.
