A millennial campus is in the works ay UNCG. Basically its another name for a research park. This designation allows UNCG to compete and work with the private sector. Greensboro already has one millennial campus and thats Gateway University Research Park which is a joint research park between UNCG and NC A&T State.

The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, also shared by the city’s two universities, is Gateway’s most prominent tenant. Other tenants include a U.S. Department of Agriculture office, a VF Corp. research center and several startup companies.

The new campus near downtown will be a combination of existing buildings on the campus and new university development along the Gate City Blvd corridor. It will be divided into two districts. Health and Wellness and Visual and Performing Arts. Business/Research incubators and a black box theater are just a few ideas being thrown around. The arts district could include art galleries, cafes and maybe a small movie theater.

This would bring a business and research campus closer to downtown. It will be more of an urban research campus as oppose to GURP on the east side of town. The goal is to spur innovation, student learning and regional economic development. Eventually this could all tie in with Union Square in the south end of downtown creating the downtown university district the city is wanting which is being modeled after the university district in Spokane, Washington.
