Space Planning and Utilization
The Office of Institutional Research (IR) collects and reports to UNC General Administration facilities and utilization data. The facilities (building and room) inventory is collected in the fall of each year. Space utilization data consists not only of how often classes meet but also of how space and rooms are used. Space use falls into several categories such as classrooms, laboratories, offices, study facilities, special use facilities, etc. Within these general categories are more specific room uses, each of which is given a specific numerical designation based on its primary functional use.
