Beginning with a single academic building, the Mount Allison campus has continued to evolve with 38 buildings and 72-acres to date.

As part of our commitment to uphold and maintain the quality of the Mount Allison experience for current and future students, we continue to work towards the development and implementation of various maintenance and renewal initiatives to existing spaces.
