Why do we need your input?
During 2018 we’re reviewing our vision for the future development and improvement of our campus environment - buildings, spaces, infrastructure and experience for students, staff, visitors, business partners and neighbours. We will use this to create a new Campus Masterplan for 2030 and beyond. We’ve appointed an experienced team of architects, designers, engineers and urbanists who have a great track record in creating outstanding places for people to study, live and work.
Before we start, we’d like people from across the University community to tell us how you feel about your campus right now – what do you like, what don’t you like, how can we make it better?
We will continue to share our thinking and seek your feedback throughout the process as it develops.
What’s a “Masterplan”?
A masterplan provides a vision for the future and a framework within which we can consider the development of the campus, taking into account the surrounding region. It’s a visionary process, so not everything included in it can or will happen, but it gives us a way to explore and prioritise possibilities according to our needs and our budgets.
Since Warwick was founded in 1965, campus development has been governed by a series of masterplans, each spanning a 10 year period. The current masterplan is nearing the end of its life, which is why we’re going to refresh it during 2018.
What happens next?
We will keep in touch with staff, students and our wider community as our long-term thinking develops. We continue to deliver new buildings and improvements to campus ahead of the 2030 masterplan. With this in mind, several new Capital Plan projects are to be submitted for approval in 2018 as part of a ‘hybrid’ planning application. This will include more details for the new Faculty of Arts and Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research buildings, as well as outline proposals for other new developments and car park improvements. During May, we will be in touch to let you know how you can find out more and give your input to these plans.
