Since the 1970s the campus has continued to grow, infilling to maintain walkability, bringing innovative architecture to complement the historic buildings and sustaining its landscapes and natural resources. Recognized around the world for its impressive, eclectic mix of architecture and beautiful gardens, greens and natural areas, the campus of tomorrow will have to meet the needs of the evolving institution while maintaining its historic beauty.

In 2005 the University embarked on a major campus planning initiative, with the goal of accommodating significant academic expansion while preserving the historic features of the campus. A visitor to campus today will see new buildings and spaces that expand and connect the disciplines and that create fresh opportunities to engage with the life of the University.
