Developing plans for campus growth and improvements which reflect our commitment to sustainability.
Campus Master Planning at the University of Louisville is an on-going process to create and implement an integrated, long-term vision for wise stewardship and growth at all three of our campuses.

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.
As of spring 2015, UofL and our affiliated student housing partners have redeveloped 288 acres of brownfields
as we've grown our main Belknap campus. These were former industrial or commercial sites that had varying levels of environmental contamination and were a blight on the community.
