Warren College and Geisel Library

In planning, we look at the big picture. We conceptualize and consider how we can best shape the built environment. We ask questions and provide answers: How can we deliver on leadership's vision while meeting campus needs and working with the surrounding community? What regulations may affect development? Where will funding come from?

Campus Planning

Campus Planning provides a framework to guide future development of the built environment – the buildings, open space, transportation, circulation and infrastructure improvements needed to keep the campus functioning effectively. The Campus Planning office oversees:

  • Capital Planning – responsible for space program development and funding analysis; works directly with UC Office of the President to obtain initial project approvals
  • Community Planning – working with neighboring communities to keep them informed of UC San Diego development
  • Environmental Planning – navigates environmental regulations to minimize impact
  • Space Planning – help balance challenges and opportunities to effectively use campus administrative space

"Great scientists from campuses all over America, who shared the dream of creating a new kind of university in this magical place." –Roger Revelle
