The North Carolina State University Centennial Campus is a unique plan to provide an environmentally sustainable, mixed-use “urban village” that fosters research partnerships between university, government, and private industry. The 1,334-acre campus includes 25 buildings for a total of 2.7 million square feet of office and lab space. Conceived as a “city within a city” that uses models for both campus and town planning, the campus courtyard is the key organizing element. The buildings are clustered in neighborhoods by discipline, including bioscience and biotechnology, information and communications technologies, advanced materials, and education. The campus is currently home to 61 corporate and government partners and 73 university research centers, institutes, laboratories and departments. In 2007, the Centennial Campus was named Outstanding Research Science Park by the Association of University Research Parks.
