2040 Campus Master Plan Update

Campus Master Plan


The CSU Board of Trustees requires that each campus develop a master plan showing existing and anticipated facilities necessary to accommodate projected enrollment at an estimated planning horizon. Each campus master plan reflects the physical requirements of academic programs and auxiliary activities through the planning horizon.

Universities are directed to reevaluate their master plans at least every 10 years to determine the need for changes in the scope and planning horizon. The 2040 Campus Master Plan Update (PDF)  is a vision plan that builds on Cal Poly Pomona’s previous Campus Master Plan (PDF) and will continue to guide the long-term physical development of the campus, in support of the university’s mission, strategic vision, and values. It provides a roadmap for future facility renovations and replacement, open space, mobility/circulation, infrastructure updates, and sustainability. The 2040 Campus Master Plan Update (PDF) is a thoughtful framework that addresses the campus-built environment and forges a path towards a safe, sustainable, and cohesive learning environment.

Impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic led to significant delays in the planning process and as a result, the University paused the Master Plan in 2021, prior to the preparation of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR). After conducting extensive outreach with the campus community and external stakeholders to define the priorities in the 2040 Campus Master Plan Update (PDF), and with the resumption of most in-person learning and teaching activities, the University is ready to advance the environmental review process for the Campus Master Plan Update, as required under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Campus Master Plan and Final EIR will ultimately be presented to the CSU Board of Trustees for consideration for certification and approval.

We invite the campus community and members of the public to participate in the upcoming EIR process, and to visit this website for updated information. To learn more, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions or Contact Us with questions.
