Over the past several years, Capital Planning & Development has focused on creating a means to collectively evaluate, develop, and describe the intentions of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Campus. The Campus Design Guide is a means to address those issues and is offered as a tool to understand Campus in more detail.
The guide is organized into five major sections: history of campus, design mission, campus layout, detailed index of the buildings and landscapes, and a brief introduction to the campus design review process.
Our goal is to clearly define what makes the UW-Madison campus sustainable, functional, and beautiful. Through these definitions, we hope to create a campus environment that encourages student success and strengthens connections that create a stronger sense of place. The Campus Design Guide was created for, but is not limited to, designers, stakeholders, and the campus community.
