Developing plans for campus growth and improvements which reflect our commitment to sustainability.
Campus Master Planning at the University of Louisville involves all three of our campuses. The 287-acre Belknap Campus is three miles from downtown Louisville and houses seven of the University's 11 colleges and schools. The Health Sciences Center is situated in downtown Louisville's medical complex and houses the University's health related programs and the University of Louisville Hospital. The 243-acre Shelby Campus is located in eastern Jefferson County. In total, the university manages over 115 buildings (totaling over 8,286,716 gross square feet) and 660 acres of land on all three campuses.
In November 2009, the UofL Board of Trustees approved a revised master plan for the main Belknap campus which integrates sustainability considerations such as brownfield redevelopment, storm water infiltration, green spaces, and promoting transportation alternatives through improved planning for pedestrians, cyclists and bus riders. The links below will take you to more detailed information about these issues.
