Campus Master Plan

In 2020 Reed College entered into the Campus Institutional Zoning Plan with the City of Portland. This plan was put forth by the city in an effort to provide growth to metro-area campus employment centers while protecting and maintaining surrounding neighborhoods against unwanted offsite impacts. As a result of this program, the college is no longer required to provide the city with a conditional-use master plan every 10 years.

Administrators of the college determined that it is still useful to have a governing document to help guide the physical growth of campus and to create a “road map” of how campus could potentially grow over time. In this effort, the Campus Framework Master Plan (CFMP) was developed.

This CFMP is based on assumptions and guiding principles established by Reed College trustees, faculty, staff, and students. The CFMP is meant to serve as a guide for well-organized strategic development and stewardship of the Reed campus for years to come.

The CFMP acknowledges that the physical environment must support Reed’s academic mission, help foster a strong sense of community, and reinforce Reed’s unique collegiate identity. Therefore, new and old buildings, infrastructure, and open spaces shall continue to be catalysts for a rich and meaningful educational experience. The guiding principles should not constrict the long-range vision but provide a framework for projects to be planned and located appropriately.

The CFMP was developed to illustrate the current vision for the location of future buildings and to inform the community on the capacity for new buildings within the current campus boundary.
