Reimagine UMass Dartmouth

Master Plan - campus 1964
Master Plan - campus 2014

UMass Dartmouth has undertaken the creation of a Campus Master Plan to meet the long-term educational needs of our students and to support UMassDTransform2020 priorities. We have partnered with the design team of DesignLab and Ayers Saint Gross to fashion a comprehensive plan that includes input from students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community.
