Centrally located in the city of Richmond, Virginia, VCU’s unique architecture, natural resources and culture help shape a notably diverse campus community. The ONE VCU Master Plan is the framework designed to support VCU's important mission and aligns VCU’s physical environment with the VCU and VCU Health strategic plan, Quest 2028: One VCU Together We Transform. The master plan identifies common goals and provides a shared, evidence-based vision for development to guide physical campus investments. The first master plan in VCU’s history to set a unified vision for all VCU properties, the ONE VCU Master Plan is guided by principles that focus first and foremost on student success and patient experience, but which also place a strong emphasis on mobility, safety, campus unification, synergy among programs, and celebrating VCU’s unique urban setting and rich history.
