Space Standards • General Purpose – 35 hr/week – 18 sf/station – 65% seat Space Standards • General Purpose – 35 hr/week – 18 sf/station – 65% seat utilization • Labs – 20 hr/week – 75% seat utilization – sf/station varies depending on discipline

More inclusive decision-making • Space proposals • Academic Space Management committee gives academic units More inclusive decision-making • Space proposals • Academic Space Management committee gives academic units a strong voice • Class placement review • Building Tours
