Campus Investments

200 million in investments

Big Blue Says... Here We GROW Again!

As more and more New Pioneers join the Alfred State family, we are growing for the future. ASC is working hard not only to maintain but also to improve our campus. Over one decade from 2016 -- 2026, campus investments will surpass $200 million

Our designs are built to make the campus function well and look great. Alfred State is enhancing the beauty across our scenic campus in many ways. For example, even if improvements to underground services demand changes in landscaping, we plant more trees and add even more lush green spaces.

Facilities Services and Capital Projects staff keep the campus community updated regarding project timelines including public meetings to answer questions and share details. As each project is completed, we reap the benefits with students, faculty, and staff enjoying the upgrades.
