Why Now
A university's campus master plan serves as the physical framework for the academic program and student experience. It ensures that such physical assets as buildings, transportation routes and green space meet the needs of students, faculty, staff and neighbors.

The goal of San Francisco State University's campus master plan is to support the University's strategic initiatives, creating a physical plan that will enable the University to address student demand for access to a quality education. The plan will identify the facilities and campus amenities needed to accommodate more students, as well as the faculty and staff needed to teach and provide services to those students.

The master planning process is highly interactive, providing all members of the campus community—from faculty and students to staff, visitors and neighbors—an opportunity to participate. It begins with an in-depth assessment and analysis, proceeds to idea-generation and exploration of planning concepts, and concludes with a comprehensive plan for growth and renewal.
