Tree-lined grass walkways, flowing underpasses and overpasses and shaded courtyards have always been trademarks of university campuses.
The UA, nestled in the Sonoran desert, has never been known for these amenities.
As the university grew outside the confines of the Old Main driveway during the middle of the 20th century, the outskirts of campus started to look sparse, something UA officials now hope to change.
Fifteen years from now, if all goes as planned, the UA‚s aesthetic plan for the future will be in full swing, and that plan will capitalize on the traditional images of university life.
Overall, this Comprehensive Campus Plan, drawn together by UA planners and an independent architectural firm, is an outline of where future buildings and complexes should be placed and will set out to utilize remaining open space.
