Campus Master Plan Initiatives

This artist’s rendering imagines how Brandon University could grow for decades into the future, under the guidance of our new Campus Master Plan.

BU’s Campus Master Plan lays out a long-term vision for the physical growth and enhancement of BU’s main campus and high-level direction for the planning of our other campus locations. Enhanced landscaping, tree planting, improved signage, and the addition of benches will all lend to a welcoming, student-centered and experiential-learning environment that facilitates innovation, teaching and learning, research, recreation, and socialization.
