Guiding future growth of the UC San Diego La Jolla campus

The Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) is a general land use plan that guides the physical development of the campus. The LRDP outlines the possibilities for growth in a way that acknowledges the campus’s historic foundations, natural beauty and unique character while ensuring that UC San Diego can continue to advance its mission: To transform California and a diverse global society by educating, by generating and disseminating knowledge and creative works, and by engaging in public service.

As UC San Diego evolves and grows in light of increasing student enrollment, the campus is updating its LRDP, which was last updated in 2004. Once approved by the UC Regents – expected in 2018 – the LRDP will enable the campus to continue planning in a thoughtful and sustainable manner.
