Mount Allison's Campus Master Plan was developed in 2002 and is currently undergoing an update.
The University is working with a consultant whose expertise is in campus planning to develop the update.
The consultant is gathering information about classroom and laboratory utilization, building condition, and space requirements for a selection of academic buildings.
It delivered an update to the Facilities Plan Advisory Committee (FPAC) in January 2016.
Further research and community consultation is taking place and a preliminary report is expected in April 2016.

Some of the main challenges the Campus Master Plan update will need to address are:
- Accessibility in campus buildings
- Energy efficiency
- Providing space that meets the needs of users
- More space on campus currently than is being used
The update to the Campus Master Plan will examine, in particular, the academic buildings in the central campus area including:
- R.P. Bell Library
- Crabtree Building
- Avard-Dixon Building
- Hart Hall
- Barclay Building
- Flemington Building
- Gairdner Building
- Dunn Building
The Facilities Plan Advisory Committee (FPAC) will be:
- reviewing and assessing the current use of space in these buildings
- examining the space requirements of the departments currently located in them
- looking at how to provide the University community with student study and general use space on campus
