University Policy 65
Space Utilization and Allocation

Formerly Executive Memorandum 98-123
Initially approved Febuary 1, 1977
Revised Febuary 24, 1998
Administering Office: University Planning

All space belongs to the University and is assigned to divisions or units on a temporary basis. Academic and administrative space of the University is assigned for designated use/users. When the use/users change, the space is reassigned by UP. Information on space assignments is maintained by the Office of University Planning (UP).


Units requesting space should prepare a request directed to UP and routed through normal administrative channels (e.g., for space in academic areas, the request should originate at the department level, be forwarded through the Dean to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and then to the Director of UP).

After consultation between the Director of UP and the Executive Council, a decision will be made and a reply forwarded by UP to the unit making the request.


All alteration or renovation of assigned space may be undertaken only by the WCU Physical Plant. If the requested renovation changes the use of the space, (e.g. classroom to office), prior approval by UP is also required.

Your cooperation and assistance in the most effective and equitable utilization of the total space of the University is appreciated.
