University of Alberta campuses are an ever-changing landscape, advancing and adapting to meet the research, teaching and learning needs of a top-tier post-secondary institution.

With so many buildings, ranging from simple offices to complex research facilities, it's critical that investments are made in support of continued excellence in education and research. The way in which space is designed, used and maintained are critical factors to the accessibility, effectiveness and sustainability of our campuses.

The Integrated Asset Management Strategy (IAMS) ensures that decisions related to the stewardship of its infrastructure across the university's five campuses are made holistically and with the university’s long-term objectives in mind. IAMS outlines related principles, goals, and actions to strengthen how we care for our campuses.

Stewards of U of A spaces

IAMS was developed with input and feedback from stakeholders across the U of A’s campuses. It was initially approved by the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council in June 2019, and refreshed in 2023. The strategy is guided by 14 principles which support student success, life experience, research and scholarship; asset management; campus character; and decision-making. Under the strategy, all members of the U of A community share a collective responsibility to serve as stewards of our spaces.
