Welcome to the New Century

The new century finds UC Berkeley at the threshold of major physical change. The substantial capital investments required to improve the seismic safety of our buildings, and accommodate the growing number of college-age Californians, also present us with a unique opportunity to leverage those investments to renew the campus, and provide the space and infrastructure we require to maintain the Berkeley standard of excellence.

Because our resources are finite, however, we must ensure each new investment represents the optimal use of land and capital, preserves and enhances our extraordinary legacy of landscape and architecture, and improves the quality of campus life. The New Century Plan provides a comprehensive strategic framework for these decisions.

The files listed below are grayscale versions of each section of this website, in .pdf format. They are optimized for laser printers, but should also print nicely on most inkjet printers. The color diagrams have been converted to black and white patterns so they are legible in grayscale, yet download relatively quickly compared to color images. If your pages print in the wrong orientation, set your page layout to "landscape" and try again.
