Princeton University is reaching out to students, faculty, and members of the community with a new website called ‘Campus Compass‘. The site allows people to inform the University about how they use the campus, as part of the ongoing effort to make a new masterplan to address the University’s future needs.
Being able to access the University’s beautiful campus is one of the biggest perks of living in Princeton. But many members of the community will no doubt be pleased to be included as part of the discussions that will pave the way to future campus designs. The Campus Compass sets out to gather data. The goal is as follows:
“Our team wants to understand where people spend their time, what the main patterns of movement around campus are, and how places on campus are experienced and perceived. By participating, you’ll inform the planning and future evolution of the campus.”
The area that is part of the study can be viewed at this map. The Campus Compass page allows users to map exactly where they go on campus, and to add comments.
The deadline for input on the Campus Compass project is “the first week of June“, and a report is due based on the results later in the summer.
