Gross Square Footage includes all owned buildings on University Property. Leased spaces are currently not included. UW-Rock County campus not included in institutional boundary for 2018 reporting.

Energy intensive spaces were determined using classification codes for Class Labs (210), Open Labs (220), and Research Labs (250) to determine the laboratory space. While some of these areas can probably be better defined in the future, using these relatively broad classifications ensured that all spaces (like computer labs) were included under a use code that might also include some less energy-intensive space.

Service area classifications commonly used for storage or support rooms (215,225,255) were omitted.

A similar determination was used to include food service areas and associated service areas (630, 635). It is not easily identifiable which specific areas might have higher energy use without a more detailed assessment of each individual space.

All central computer or telecommunications spaces (710/715) were included. All greenhouse space was included (580).

Health care space includes all areas in the 800 series not easily identifiable as low-energy areas (like waiting rooms).

Energy Intensive space breakdowns (Use Code: Square Footage) (last available data from 2015):
210: 68,841
220: 51,894
250: 24,539
580: 3,981
630: 36,965
635: 37,361
710: 12,530
715: 7,564
800s: 5,868

Updates to energy intensive spaces subject to revision if data source improves.
