The Water Campus is a world-class collaborative research campus devoted to the study of coastal restoration and sustainability. Developing over the next decade, The Water Campus will rise on 35 acres along the Mississippi River, adjacent to downtown Baton Rouge.
More than 1.8 million square feet of labs, research facilities and commercial space will enable vital work to be done in a collaborative environment – studying coastal threats, formulating theories, exchanging ideas, and cooperating to arrive at innovative solutions that might never be possible working alone.
The Water Campus is currently home to the Coastal Protection & Restoration Authority, the agency in charge of implementing the $50 billion coastal master plan. Also located on the campus is the LSU Center for River Studies – an 80-mile small scale physical model of the lower Mississippi River. The Center for Coastal & Deltaic Solutions sits on the city’s old municipal dock and is home to the Water Institute of The Gulf, The Estuary, a 6,000 square foot Conference & Event Venue and the LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio. Also located on the campus is the Louisiana Cyber Coordination Center, Stantec, The Lemoine Company, Aptim, and 200 Water Street (20 loft-style apartments).
