Kenyon has updated its plans for returning to campus, offering in-person and remote instruction. Read more here.
The Kenyon Campus Master Plan is an opportunity to reinforce what makes Kenyon unique. It aims to enhance the student experience, strengthen the College’s role in the local community as a cultural and economic resource and further Kenyon’s environmental stewardship. The Master Plan establishes a framework for campus development supporting the College's academic mission.
The plan detailed below is an update of the 2004 Campus Master Plan, which aims to reaffirm the guiding principles of the 2004 plan, evaluate those principles in light of completed campus initiatives and define recommendations to guide future campus development in support of the Strategic Plan. Please see the sections below with downloadable PDFs containing more detailed information.
Download the Master Plan PDF. The Campus Master Plan is structured around broad objectives rather than specific initiatives.
Download the Academic Core PDF. The historic academic core of campus is its symbolic heart. Consolidating academics in this core was a priority of the 2004 Master Plan and the College continues to address this area.
Download the Campus Community PDF. Nurturing the whole student requires a holistic approach to facilities planning and the distribution of campus programs to support well-being and build community in the campus experience.
Download the Village Revitalization PDF. The small-scale residential fabric of the village defines the charm and pedestrian nature of Gambier. This should be preserved where possible and enhanced where it has been eroded.
