Campus Planning & Facilities Management

Vision, principles, process

Who we are

The Campus Planning team is responsible for the planning and development of UFV's campuses and centres. We direct the sustainable development of our campuses, oversee major capital projects, and play a lead role in community liaison, partnerships, and resource development.

What guides Campus Planning

We believe our campuses play an important role in furthering UFV's mission to engage learners, transform lives, and build community and we strive to apply UFV's Integrated Strategic Plan in every initiative that we lead.

Our goal is to create the best learner experience on campus, integrating learning spaces and the public realm into a vibrant campus community.

Students collaborate around a classroom table in a light, airy classroom.

UFV's Campus Master Plans

A master plan focuses on the important role the campus plays in pursuing UFV's mission and leading the social, cultural, economic, and environmentally responsible development of the Fraser Valley.

UFV has two campus master plans, one for each main campus.

Planning processes


Space planning

Campus space is recognized as a critical and limited university resource to be used efficiently and effectively for the highest and best use for the university. Learn about the principles and the university policies that guide all campus space projects.

Transportation planning

Planning for a beautiful, functional campus includes planning for diverse ways to get to and from UFV, get around our campuses, and park a vehicle while on campus.

Capital planning

Capital Planning provides planning, design, and construction of new and existing buildings, furnishings, equipment, and utility infrastructure services to the UFV community.

Through the Project Office, project leads assist in the development of requests for services not considered routine maintenance.  Such services may include a room’s change of use, renovations, and new construction. Associated costs are funded via the capital budget or by the requesting department’s operating budget. 

Campus planning supports our UFV stakeholders in making informed decisions by means of an established project management structure that supports the success of the project plan and strategy, identifying the right resources, and in collaboration with the cultural transformation that is integral to the UFV Community.

Capital planning

"Everything we do here at UFV should be focused on the student.

Everything that we touch, feel, or smell — our whole physical environment — has an impact on our physical well-being. So, if we want students, staff, and faculty to be in an environment that inspires them, then that’s where you need to translate your focused attention.”
