    Purpose The purpose of this paper is to identify the state-of-art of Nordic campus development and identify how campus areas can be retrofitted by addition of new technologies, features, functions and services. The leading research question is: how to develop Nordic resilient campus management in all five countries with closely comparable circumstances both on a societal and on an infrastructural level.
    Theory The current Nordic campus built environment, which represent both a technically and functionally ageing real estate portfolio is approached by applying a systemic understanding of university campuses as socio-technical systems.
    Design/methodology/approach State-of-art analysis is conducted using literature review and document analysis.
    Findings The results identify the trends and challenges on strategic, tactical and operational levels and the three-level roadmap for future campus retrofitting and research is presented.
    Originality/value The research is conducted as part of the preparation for a Nordic research and campus development collaboration initivative and will serve as a framework for demonstrations conducted on different Nordic campuses.
