In 2002 the Board of Regents approved a Facilities Master Plan.

The plan helped:

  • Campbell Hallensure that maintenance and construction work would be carried out in a co-ordinated fashion
  • provide guidance on how to meet the University’s evolving program needs
  • assess the condition of facilities and space requirements

The core of the plan was that the campus would be divided into three primary areas:

  • Residential area: Residences and the dining hall would be concentrated on the north side of campus
  • Academic area: The central block of campus would be dedicated to academic and administrative functions
  • Student life area: Student life facilities, such the student centre and recreation and athletic facilities, would be concentrated on the south side of campus
