Space Planning

The purpose of space planning is to provide accurate current conditions data, and provide benchmarking and forecasting measures to ensure efficient utilization and adequate availability of physical resources.

Space planning maintains inventories and coordinates allocation of campus resources including land, buildings and space. In coordination with resources inventories, building floor plans are maintained as a web resource for the campus community. Space management also participates in the Academic Program Review.

The efficient management of University space reduces operating and capital costs, improves campus sustainability, and results in greater equity across units. To learn more about how PSU manages campus space, read about the Space Allocation Committee.
