Campus Transformation

On the cusp of its second century, Providence College is evolving in ways that would have been difficult to imagine even just a few years ago.  Now at the forefront is a once-in-a-generation opportunity known as the Campus Transformation Project. Triggered by the College’s 2013 purchase of most of Huxley Avenue from the City of Providence, Campus Transformation will result in a "once in a generation" landscape and land-use master plan that will address the functional and aesthetic attributes of the campus.  The plan will result in a unified campus, no longer bisected by a busy city street, with improved ways to move throughout the community for both pedestrians and drivers.

The Campus Transformation Project consists of 5 Phases that will involve various projects spanning multiple fiscal years.  With the approval of a new Campus Landscape and Land Use Plan in February 2015, Phase 1 projects have been completed.  Phase II projects are now underway.

The Campus Transformation Project is meant to be grass-roots and community oriented.  Input from every constituent group is critical to devising the best plan and executing it in a way that will ensure a superb result. This web page will serve as the informational and communication hub for the associated planning process. Please visit this site regularly, and keep a lookout for ongoing communications relative to community surveys and project updates that will be posted here.
