Space Information Terms and Definitions

Space Usage & Area Definitions

Here you will find definitions of some frequently used facilities terms. These are very useful when trying to understand the data that can be found on these pages.
Academic/Administrative Space
Space assigned to departments and organizational units whose functions are instruction, research, public service, academic support, student services, institutional support, operation and maintenance of physical plant, and certain auxiliary enterprises.

Supplementary Space
Space assigned to departments and organizational units whose functions are related to auxiliary enterprises, independent operations or non-institutional activities, hospitals, and residential activities.

Total Assignable Area
The sum of all areas on all floors of a building or addition assigned to, or available for assignment to an occupant or specific use, except for spaces defined as building service, circulation, mechanical, or structural (or Academic/Administrative + Supplemental).

Gross Square Feet
The sum of all areas on all floors of a building or addition included within the outside faces of exterior walls, including floor penetration areas. This figure should include spaces coded as nonassignable, such as building service, circulation, mechanical, structural, and all assignable areas. Open areas such as parking lots, playing fields, courts and light wells, or portions of upper floors eliminated by lobbies or rooms that rise above single-floor ceiling height should be excluded.

Non-assignable Area
The sum of all areas on all floors of a building not available for assignment to an occupant or for specific use, but necessary for the general operation of a building (hallways, public restrooms, stair wells, elevators, mechanical areas, custodial & telecommunication closets).

Net Area
The sum of all areas on all floors of a building either assigned to, or available for assignment to, an occupant or specific use, or necessary for the general operation of a building (total assignable + non-assignable).
Data differs slightly from OP-8 credits but CFS numbers were used for reporting of Healthcare and Lab Space
