A coordinated strategy for developing our campus environment


Similar to a city's general plan, UC Berkeley's Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) is our general planning framework. It establishes the principles that guide decisions about new development projects. A forward-thinking document, the LRDP envisions a coordinated strategy for providing the infrastructure needs of a modern research university.

UC Berkeley’s long-range development is guided by strategic objectives that support the University’s mission and is consistent with the campus’s commitments to sustainability, being a good neighbor and community partner, and serving the people of California.

Every University of California campus has an LRDP which is updated at key points in time. After nearly 15 years, the time has come to update Berkeley’s LRDP so it is consistent with and supportive of our Strategic Plan, as well as key campus priorities such as housing, energy efficiency, accessibility, mobility, seismic remediation, and deferred maintenance.
