What We Do

The Physical Planning unit is responsible for overseeing land use planning for all UCSF campus sites, including Parnassus Heights, Mount Zion and Mission Bay, and site selection for major new construction projects and campus expansion. Included within the unit's broad scope of responsibility is master planning, landscape planning, signage, maintenance of the campus' Long Range Development Plan, and oversight of planning studies related to land use and design guidelines set forth in the Long Range Development Plan. The Physical Planning unit also prepares required environmental documentation for construction and major renovation projects to ensure compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act.
