Space Committee and Space Planning

All University buildings and land belong to the University as a whole and are subject to assignment and reassignment to meet the institution's overall priorities and needs. The University Space Committee (USC) will make decisions concerning the use and renovation of space; the allocation of existing space; and planning for future allocation needs. The Provost is responsible for allocations of all university space including off-campus rental space in consultation with the USC. Decisions are made after careful consideration of all relevant factors and consultation with the units involved. Relevant factors include: adherence to the master plan, compatibility with existing use of space, university strategic priority and cost. The University Space Committee (USC), which is chaired by the Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities, approves all allocations of university space and off-campus rental space, except for space allocations in Blair Hall, which are approved by the Chancellor. Each college, school and division  is encouraged to establish a Local Space Committee to consider and prioritize local needs and discuss space requests to be made to the University Space Committee. The Local Space Committee will work to implement decisions made by the USC.
