Campus Planning and Development Office

The Campus Planning and Development Office (CPDO) primary role is to support McGill’s mission as a public institution for the advancement of learning by providing expertise related to the planning and development of the university’s campuses. In fulfilling this role, CPDO is responsible for defining a clear vision for the physical campuses that reflect the strategic goals of the university and the objectives of the Provost’s Strategic Academic Plan. In doing so, the office ensures that development and changes on campus occur cohesively and that spaces and resources are allocated in a manner that effectively supports the objectives of the university.

The CPDO is a team of dedicated urban planners, architects and other professionals who work closely with internal and external stakeholders to create vibrant campuses that are open, connected and purposeful.
