The University’s campus is changing — and growing. By 2026, up to two new residential colleges will accommodate 500 new undergraduate students, including transfer students who will be admitted as part of the University's reinstated transfer program. These new residential buildings are just one part of a larger plan to expand the University. According to Executive Vice President Treby Williams ’84, the expansion will be the “most ambitious and comprehensive” in the University’s history. When the expansion is done, Lake Carnegie will be the geographical center of campus, and there will be graduate housing, retail shops, and possibly even a hotel in the southern part of campus.
The University has made big steps throughout the 2017–18 year to pursue its 10-year campus development plan, including starting major additions like residential colleges and a new “Lake Campus” south of Lake Carnegie.
