Previous Campus Master Plans

Prior to the current 2013 Campus and Landscape Master Plan, there were two previous Campus Master Plans, one produced in 2006, and the other in 1998.  Originally, the 2006 Master Plan was designed to guide the campus from 2006 to 2015.  However, because of the tremendous growth of the campus, UNL's move to the Big Ten Conference, and new visions for UNL's campus and landscape identity, a new plan was needed.  Therefore, in June 2012, UNL launched Plan Big: UNL Campus and Landscape Master Plan, which will guide the University's growth over the next fifteen years and beyond. The new plans were approved by the NU Board of Regents on September 20, 2013.
