Long-Term Planning



Long-term planning gives UNM the framework for moving our great University forward, one step at a time; it opens the doors to new possibilities.

With an institution of the size and complexity of UNM, long-term campus planning is a continual process. Our University faces a major challenge of advancing our mission as a flagship University on five campuses and numerous sites across the state.


Integrated Campus Plan

UNM has initiated its Integrated Campus Plan (ICP) that will replace the 2009 Master Plan; it will address all UNM properties and guide the University’s decisions on the physical environment, including the character of each campus,  safety, access, mobility, and sustainability.

The ICP will focus on the facilities, grounds, and physical assets of the institution to provide a “road map” to fulfill the vision and goals set forth in University’s Strategic Plan UNM 2040: Opportunity Defined (UNM 2040).

Learn more about the plan and share what you think is essential to improve or preserve on campus.

Help build the future of UNM

The University of New Mexico campuses are more than an assortment of buildings with classrooms, labs, office spaces, and housing halls. UNM’s properties encompass over 2,000 acres, including branch campuses in Gallup, Los Alamos, Los Lunas, Rio Rancho, and Taos.

FDC invites you to participate in crafting the “road map” for the future development of UNM’s campus and landholdings. The outcome of this 16-month-long process will be a guide to facilitate decision-making about UNM’s physical assets, safety, access, mobility, and sustainability Click here to find out the latest ways to get involved and give your input.

Concept & Facility Plans

FDC facilitates concept plans and facility plans for colleges, schools, and departments to development conceptual plans that assess how they can better use or renovate their spaces, vacate old spaces, and/or build new spaces to meet their programmatic and technological needs.


These plans are visionary and often incorporate many of the planning services FDC offers. They determine priorities and phasing over a 10-year horizon.
