From Wikipedia

Joseph Jacques Ramée's original plan for Union College in Schenectady, New York, the first comprehensively planned campus in the United States[1]

A campus is traditionally the land on which a college or university and related institutional buildings are situated. Usually a college campus includes libraries, lecture halls, residence halls, student centers or dining halls, and park-like settings.

A modern campus is a collection of buildings and grounds that belong to a given institution, either academic or non-academic. Examples include the Googleplex and the Apple Campus.

campus (plural campuses)

    • 2013 August 24, Schumpeter, “Mr Geek goes to Washington”, in The Economist, volume 408, number 8850:
      From their corporate campuses on the west coast, America’s technology entrepreneurs used to ignore faraway Washington, DC—or mention the place only to chastise it for holding back innovation with excessive regulation. They have, at times, invested in the low politics of self-interested lobbying […]. Yet unlike Wall Street [] tech tycoons have remained largely aloof from the broader affairs of the nation’s capital.
    The campus is sixty hectares in size.
  2. An institution of higher education and its ambiance.
    During the late 1960s, many an American campus was in a state of turmoil.
