Campus Planning and Sustainability Office
The Campus Planning and Sustainability Office (CPSO) is a policy unit responsible for campus planning and sustainability matters.

One of our main duties is to oversee the implementation of the recommendations in the Campus Master Plan.

We support the University's long-term physical developments in terms of campus and space planning, institutionalize green policies and practices to build a sustainable campus, and steer and coordinate efforts in these strategic areas with increased visibility and augmented leadership.

CPSO was established in July 2011 and reports to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Administration.
