2018 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP)

UC Davis has great aspirations for the coming decade, including the continued advancement of the academic mission and the most ambitious student housing plan in the history of campus. To support this growth and ensure the campus has the necessary facilities and amenities to remain competitive, the university initiated a planning process to fully understand the campus of tomorrow.

The UC Davis 2018 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) is the culmination of a collaborative planning effort to understand and anticipate the necessary steps to realize the campus of tomorrow. The LRDP reflects years of collaboration, building upon the initial workshops conducted during the summer of 2015 and responding to community feedback throughout the planning process.

The LRDP and the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) were presented to the University of California Board of Regents on July 18, 2018. The Board of Regents approved the LRDP and certified the Final EIR on July 19, 2018.


The Campus of Tomorrow

For UC Davis, the campus of tomorrow is a place where students, faculty, and staff live, learn and work in an environment that is beautiful and accessible, functional and flexible, and sustainable and resilient. It is a place that fosters research and innovation; it is a place that grows the most fertile minds for the next generation of engaged leaders; and it is a place that examines challenging societal issues. The UC Davis 2018 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) is the culmination of a multi-year effort to understand these needs, identify strategic improvements and projects, and enable the campus of tomorrow.
