Princeton Campus Plan

Princeton University has begun to develop a new plan that will establish a framework to guide the evolution of the campus from 2016 through 2026, and beyond. It will be prepared with the assistance of a team of consulting designers, planners, architects, engineers and analysts. University representatives gave a status report (link is external) on the plan to town of Princeton residents, council members and planning committee members on Sept. 19, 2016.—>It’s important that students and USG understand how this could impact the future of the university and student life. The university has been sharing information with the town and other stakeholders. What about students? This is a short-term 3-week project that will first start with an analysis of important parts of the plan that will impact students, how to get student input and feedback, and breaking up into a few topic areas in the campus plan. *We need at least one member from each class: sophomore, junior, and senior class.
