Space on the Auburn University campus is a fixed, highly visible but generally a scarce resource. The Office of Campus Planning & Space Management has been created by the President and Provost to ensure the most effective and efficient use of this valuable resource.
The following guidelines have been developed by the Office of Campus Planning & Space Management to serve as an aid in planning, allocating and managing space on the campus. These guidelines will assist the Auburn community in establishing equitable, consistent, efficient and flexible planning parameters as well as making sound management decisions about space allocations both for new construction and within existing or renovated buildings. The Office of Campus Planning & Space Management has been given the responsibility to administer these guidelines and assist the campus community in their implementation and interpretation.
At this point, these guidelines represent a synthesis of similar guidelines at peer universities with North Carolina State and Stanford University representing the primary benchmarks. Going forward, these guidelines will be continually reviewed and adapted to represent the unique circumstances and conditions of Auburn University . Therefore, this document should be considered a "living" document that will evolve as new information arises. The Office of Campus Planning & Space Management welcomes your comments and suggestions on these guidelines and their application.
