At UAlbany, physical space is a finite resource.
The Office of Campus Planning provides professional staff support to assist
and advise the campus community in space planning and allocation decisions.
Increasing enrollment, faculty hires, and aggressive research aspirations
along with the need for surge space to allow for renovations to address the
critical maintenance and repair needs of aging facilities infrastructure,
have placed extraordinary demands on the University's finite physical space
resources. Physical space is allocated and managed as a budgeted resource
with a high level of Executive Space Committee oversight and coordination
to ensure consistency with large University goals and objectives making a
centralized clearinghouse for space-related information and support critical
for oversight and coordination.
