Room Use Codes Restrictions

The following Space Inventory Room Guide provides room-type information that is typically needed to complete the space inventory review. The guide is organized by three types of campus activities: 1) Instruction and Research (I & R) and General Use, 2) Health Care Facilities, and 3) Residential Facilities.

Within each section:

  • Room-types are sorted by those that require station counts, marked YES, and room-types that do not require station counts, marked NO.
  • Each room-type is followed by the FDX abbreviation and the room use title code represented by a three digit number.
  • Of special importance is a section noting any restrictions in room code use, such as classroom and laboratory classifications. Some room codes are specific to special programs or departments and some require confirmation by Capital Resource Management (CRM).

Also, available is a copy of the Facilities Inventory Guide, Appendix B which is a catalog of room-type definitions. Because the document contains approximately 80 pages, and does not change from year-to-year, we suggest that departments download the document and print it for future reference.
