Mount Allison celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2014-15.
Beginning with a single academy building, the campus has evolved and changed over time and currently includes 38 buildings on 77 acres.
In order to maintain and support the quality of the Mount Allison experience for current and future students, we must ensure the sustainability of our physical environment.
The Campus Master Plan helps establish priorities for campus infrastructure so we can move ahead with improvements in a planned way. It also seeks to determine and anticipate the University community's needs over the next number of years.
The current campus plan was completed in 2002 and updated in 2016-17. One of the President’s objectives is to complete a review and update of the plan and set priorities for the next decade.
This review and update will involve a process to discuss space planning and utilization.
The review is also based on the University’s Strategic Statement, which states that the University will:
- seek out sustainable ways to improve infrastructure that supports the academic experience, in particular improving teaching and study facilities
- manage property holdings and building development so as to decrease operational costs, lower deferred maintenance, control gross campus square footage, and make the environment a priority goal
- explore ways to improve facilities for athletics and recreation
The Campus Master Plan is a guide that will continue to evolve over time.
