The Water Campus is a world-class collaborative research campus devoted to the study of coastal restoration and sustainability. When fully complete, The Water Campus will have over 1.6 million square feet of commercial space. Over the next two decades it will house over 4,000 research, construction, engineering and infrastructure development professionals. It will be a catalyst for a new knowledge - based economy in Baton Rouge.
For the scientists and engineers who work at The Water Campus, Louisiana’s coastline will be a living laboratory. There, they can research the problems and test innovations that can save coasts around the world, where more than 2 billion people now live.
The Water Campus Master Plan
More than $250 million has been spent on the first phase of the campus. As it continues to grow, the campus will bring together the greatest minds in science and engineering to strengthen efforts to restore and enhance coastal environments in Louisiana, around the country and internationally.
