University Planning

University Planning 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. 

University Planning 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.


University Planning 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.
