Facilities Space Request

Existing space must be utilized as effectively as possible in order to support desired growth. Any activities that require additional space should be addressed first within a department's current allocation, then within the school or college. This form is to be used for requesting additional space outside of current allocations including new, renovated, and leased space.

After submitting the electronic space request form, the request will be routed for review by Academic Facilities and Facilities Planning for follow up as needed to confirm all necessary information before a recommendation for space assignment is made for final approval by the Provost.
