The Office of Facilities Planning is responsible for maintaining all of the documents and plans related to the physical expansion and space utilization of Towson University’s campus. This includes the campus master plan, the campus space inventory database, space management policies and procedures, space needs assessments, and archived facility records, documents, drawings and building floorplans. Facilities Planning is also responsible for preparing the annual capital- and system-funded budget requests for capital facility projects that advance the Campus Master Plan.
Developed by the Office of Facilities Planning, the 2009 campus master plan embodies Towson University’s long-term vision for the future physical development of campus. Addressing both University System of Maryland requirements and community concerns, the plan sets forth a framework for the development of academic and student life facilities, as well as the roads, parking, utilities and infrastructure to support these buildings. Though encompassing our future physical landscape, the 2009 master plan is not purely architectural. Rather its framework, principles and recommendations were developed to support the university’s mission and its associated strategic initiatives. Toward this aim the plan establishes guiding principles for improving institutional image, creating a sense of arrival to campus, forming an identifiable campus that is connected to its larger community, and developing sustainable manmade and natural environments.
