Land management

Fredericton campus plan   Saint John campus plan

Responsible stewardship

The University recognizes the tremendous importance of being a responsible steward of its lands and adopted an overall land management strategy to guide the University in the management of its valuable land assets. These include more than 8,600 acres of land in sixteen geographic areas of the province.

Supporting UNB's strategic plan

UNB's objective is to be a good neighbour. As a university, it is important to go above and beyond what is legislated for the protection of the environment, which UNB ensures is a cornerstone of all development projects. The University works hard to achieve the appropriate balance, not only from a financial perspective, but also as an environmental steward.

UNB seeks to conserve and preserve its ecologically, educationally, and environmentally valuable land assets.

Over the past decade much of UNB’s development focus has been on its land in the Fredericton area. In recent years, a small portion of UNB’s Heritage Lands in Fredericton was identified for mixed-use development to generate additional revenues for the University.

Responsible development

UNB is committed to gradual, thoughtful, and responsible land development carried out under strict principles of appropriate design and long-term sustainability. UNB recognizes and respects the public’s active interest in its land assets and will strive to ensure a healthy balance among education, conservation, development and recreation.

We focus on a variety of projects including the development of a land management plan, a commitment to a ‘green’ UNB, the preservation of the heritage, as well as the facilitation of the development of both campuses.
