The "Floor area of residential space" square footage reported is the total square footage for the residence halls, which includes space (eg. lounges, study rooms, etc.) that is not defined as “residential space” as per the US Department of Education's Post-secondary Education Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual. The actual sf is smaller, but we do not have specific data for this.

"Other energy intensive space" square footage is for the campus greenhouse.
