Purpose and Scope

The 2009-2019 UMBC Facilities Master Plan Update is an update of the UMBC 2003 Master Plan. This document presents a comprehensive, long-term vision of UMBC’s development, a plan reflective of the University’s academic mission, its institutional values and its impact on the landscape, environment, and the surrounding community. Our plan is a framework guiding facility additions and renovations to UMBC’s campus buildings, grounds and infrastructure over the long term. It serves to anticipate facilities needs to aid in realizing UMBC’s aspirations: to become one of the nation’s best research universities; to contribute to the intellectual, economic and cultural richness of the greater Baltimore area; and to engender pride among the faculty, staff, students, alumni and the citizens of Maryland.
