Facilities Master Plan Update

Campus Entry Fountain

The Facilities Master Plan (FMP) Update began in the fall of 2020. The FMP was managed by State University Construction Fund and UAlbany Office of Campus Planning, and lead by the consultant Chiang O’Brien Architects. Over the two years, the planning focus was heavily on the Analysis of Space Needs and Student Housing. There were numerous Steering Committee meetings, Dean’s meetings, a residential survey and other stakeholder meetings to develop the scenario concepts. The opportunities and recommendations presented are based upon enrollment projections of existing and new academic programs, facility infrastructure needs and campus funding allocations.

The FMP serves as a 10-year roadmap or flexible tool that prioritizes, supports and sequences new and existing academic initiatives with consideration of future facility needs that advance the academic, research, student experience and mission of the University’s Strategic Plan.
