Facilities Space Planning Procedures

Facilities Space Planning (FSP)  will perform an annual space audit to maintain the accuracy of the space inventory and floor plans.  This data will be used for ongoing analysis to determine adequate space allocation.

FSP will use adopted standards and guidelines to determine the square footage needs of all departments for comparison to actual square footage in use.

When a Major Administrative Unit (MAU) determines that additional space is needed beyond that which is currently allocated, a formal request for space must be submitted to FSP.

Please see the following links for a complete description of Facilities Space Planning procedures:

ARP 12.70 – Use of NMSU Facility Space

ARP 12.71 – Academic Facility Space Utilization and Scheduling

ARP 12.75 – Facility Space Use Management and Procedures

Facility Scheduling Authorities

NMSU currently has a decentralized system for scheduling its facilities and outdoor spaces for short-term use.  The list below identifies a Facility Scheduling Authority for each facility and space on the university campus.  Each facility and space has unique restrictions on use, use fees, and availability. Please direct inquiries to the appropriate Facility Scheduling Authority.
