Ohio University

skip to main content


UP is responsible for planning all building, land use, and infrastructure projects at every Ohio University campus including Athens, Dublin, Chillicothe, Eastern, Lancaster, Southern, and Zanesville.

We develop long-range strategies and master plans for the growth and transformation of our campuses by interrelating physical facilities, infrastructure, systems, and surroundings.  This process is facilitated by creating close relationships with University stakeholders, the City of Athens, and different community groups. Work performed by UP seeks to complement our Comprehensive Master Plan, Utility Master Plan, Housing Master Plan, and Capital Improvement Plans.

At UP, we evaluate all capital project requests for conformance with our various Ohio University master plans and university standards to ensure the appropriate use of space at each of our campuses.  We also provide master planning and major capital budget development for existing General Fund and Auxiliary units.
