Assignment and Use of Space

Section: General Index: A-17


Assignment of space is for a specific use and is usually made to a department. All changes in the use or classification of space and all reassignment of space from one department to another must be made by the President or his/her designee. Modification, renovation, or other changes to site, physical plant or landscape require the approval of the President or his/her designee. The President has delegated to the Registrar the assignment of all instructional space (i.e., general purpose classrooms, teaching laboratories, and lecture auditoria) for specific classes.


Processing Of Space Requests

All requests for changes in assignment or use of space, leasing of space, or requests for renovation or construction of space, are to be initiated in writing by the department requesting the changes.

Requests for renovation and/or construction should be forwarded to the President or his/her designee for approval only if funds for the project are available within a departmental budget.
