Institutional Master Plan

As an anchor institution in the Uptown neighborhood, Duquesne University is committed to helping the community thrive. When we explore opportunities to grow and improve our campus and surrounding areas, we look for projects that will best meet our students' and neighbors' needs.

The City of Pittsburgh requires large institutions, including universities and hospitals, to have an Institutional Master Plan (IMP). IMPs detail upcoming development projects for a span of 10-25 years. This helps the Department of City Planning and neighborhoods surrounding each institution better understand potential growth and impact.

Poised for Growth

The University's 2018-2028 Institutional Master Plan includes proposed development of academic and athletic areas as well as green space.

Next Steps

The University community and the public are invited to learn more about the 2018 IMP and share feedback at upcoming informational meetings. Once the 2018 IMP is submitted and the city's approval process is complete, projects within the IMP's scope can commence. It's important to note institutions are not required to complete all projects on their IMP.
