Re-Envisioning

Purdue's Engineering Campus
Space Master Plan [2017 - 2027]


Pinnacle of Excellence at Scale

With the guiding principles below and our proud heritage in mind, we are envisioning the next decade of space to enable our future: places for the programs and people of Purdue Engineering.

From Grissom : 1906

To Gateway Complex : 2022

Purpose-Driven

Flexible for the way we teach, learn, and discover

Student Centered

Helping students transition to the working world

Collaborative

Encouraging connections and intellectual collisions

Efficient

Better use of space, energy, technology, and lighting
