Campus Master Plan

  • Existing and proposed cycling network for Queen's campus

    Existing and proposed cycling network for Queen's campus

The Campus Master Plan 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.  Six guiding principles form the vision of the plan and provide a high level direction for the evolution of Queen's physical setting.  One of these guiding principles is to "foster a more sustainable campus".

Under this principle the plan aims to lessen the university's impact on the environment through good planning, stewardship and development practices.  In particular, Queen's will;

  • Promote green building technologies in new and renewed development 
  • Improve active transportation infrastructure, including cycling routes and pedestrian pathways
  • Invest in buildings and landscapes of enduring quality
  • Direct new development to sites already accessible to services, facilities, and infrastructure systems
  • Diversify and integrate campus uses to create complete campus communities
  • Encourage public transit by working with Kingston Transit and ensuring transit waiting areas are safe and comfortable environments
