Completed Projects and Studies


These two amendments are typical of routine work that is done to keep the Campus Plan up to date. There are currently no projects proposed for the areas. The purpose of these two amendments was to integrate Framework Vision Project recommendations into the Southeast Campus Design Area and incorporate changes from the recently completed Hayward Field; and incorporate the university’s land southeast of the Franklin Circle Design Area into the Campus Plan to guide essential future campus development based on Campus Plan principles and to integrate Framework Vision Project recommendations. The amendment documents the existing development, bringing this area into the Campus Plan, which will help guide any future changes to the area. These amendments were approved by President Schill in July 2022.
The amendment incorporates the university's land southeast of the Jaqua Triangle Design Area into the Campus Plan to guide essential future campus development based on Campus Plan principles. This area was previously not incorporated into the official campus map boundary. The amendment documents the existing development, bringing this area into the Campus Plan, which will help guide any future changes to the area. The amendment was approved by President Schill in June 2021.
The amendment incorporates the university’s land north of Franklin Boulevard into the Campus Plan to guide essential future campus development and connect people to the Willamette River based on Campus Plan principles. The amendment is consistent with the new Conditional Use Permit (2018), which was designed to accommodate the university’s long-term potential needs. The amendment was approved by President Schill in February 2021.
This page outlines the land use application process started in June 2017, and finalized with approval from the City of Eugene in October 2018.

Recreation Fields Location Options Study
This study is an initial assessment of the university’s options for locating additional physical education and recreation fields on and off campus, including potential partnerships, to accommodate increases in enrollment and be responsive to current and future needs for recreation fields to support student life. December 2019.
After an extensive process, the Campus Planning Committee took action in October 2018 and recommended the Collier House site as the preferred location for a new Classroom and Faculty Office Building. This site has since been approved by the President as the preferred site. 
After an extensive process, the Campus Planning Committee took action in November 2018 and recommended the Gerlinger Field Green as the preferred relocation site for the Collier House. This site has since been approved by the President as the preferred relocation site.

This conceptual design report provides the basis for future design of the 13th Avenue Axis to be a model of excellence in campus open-space design, reflect the Campus Plan principles and university values, and be a memorable part of the campus experience. The design addresses the half-mile segment of 13th Avenue between Kincaid Street and Franklin Blvd, along with key campus entrances. Specific design improvements are focused on the university-owned portions of 13th, with the goal of providing a unified sense of place, use, and experience.

This study examines eleven potential sites for a 1,500-seat softball stadium and associated amenities. September 2014.

Programming Studies

The purpose of this Programming Study is to record how Chapman Hall is currently being used, to identify the ways in which it could be reconfigured to support the mission of the Clark Honors College, and to establish a series of Planning Principals to guide future design work. August 2015.

Diagnosis Studies

The purpose of diagnosis studies is to record the existing conditions of the campus as they relate to the university's Campus Plan's policies and patterns. Each study contains series of diagnosis maps that depict areas that need fixing and areas that work well. This information aids in decision-making for potential development, as well as helps identify the need for future amendments to the Campus Plan. The principle of diagnosis is one of the six basic principles of the planning process adopted by the university in 1974, known as "The Oregon Experiment", and elaborated upon in the Campus Plan:
"Areas of the campus shall be studied periodically for their health. These diagnostic studies shall enumerate shortcomings and assets contained within the study area. These studies allow for the identification of areas needing repair. This in turn opens possibilities for site repair as part of future construction projects in the area. In this way, individual projects contribute to the improvement of the campus as a whole." (p. 26)
The most recent diagnoses include:
