Background

The Mary Washington campus is beautiful. No question about it. Other than the quality of the learning that students experience, the physical attractiveness of the campus is cited as one of the university’s most valuable assets. To preserve that beauty while looking toward the future, UMW engaged a team of campus planners from the firm, Burt Hill, to develop a Campus Master Plan that would ensure the aesthetic and architectural cohesiveness of the campus.  In addition to recommending building and landscape projects, Burt Hill also examined and prepared findings concerning the following:

  • A campus condition assessment including building landscape conditions
  • Campus traffic patterns now and in the future
  • Building and class room utilization
  • Current and future parking needs
  • Patterns of current and future residential utilization and demand
  • Infrastructure/utility conditions
  • Potential uses of undeveloped University and Foundation properties
