As UNLV continues to expand its teaching and research mission, it is increasingly important to establish standards for space use and space assignments on campus. The standards published here are based on benchmarking studies of institutions across the country: University of Hawaii Manoa, University of Connecticut, University of Buffalo, Stanford University, University of Colorado – Boulder, University of Wyoming, University of Utah, the Minnesota state system, and the state of Florida.
The standards listed are targets and will likely not reflect the current allocation of space on the UNLV campus. These guidelines provide a course of direction for the university as it moves forward with new construction and renovation projects. This information will also be used for space modeling and programming as we assess the current and future needs of units at UNLV.
