5,402: Priorities and Procedures for the Assignment, Scheduling and Use of University Space

Last Revised: December 2005

Responsibility: The responsibility for university space policy is assigned solely to the executive vice president & provost.

The Scheduling Office assigns space for the regular instructional programs. The executive vice president & provost assigns all space for non-instructional functions.

NOTE: The unilateral commitment of space by a user unit to another user requestor is inconsistent with university policy and therefore prohibited.

Priorities for Assignment and Scheduling: The broad general priorities applied in the scheduling of space are:

  1. University-funded instruction, research, and public service programs.
  2. University-approved extracurricular activities which include athletics, intramurals, student functions, and faculty events.
  3. University-sponsored organizations which include the USDA, National Judicial College, and National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
  4. Non-university organizations as approved by the executive vice president & provost.

Non-instructional Scheduling by University Personnel:

The Scheduling Services office is responsible for the coordination and scheduling of all general purpose academic and exterior spaces for non instructional meetings, activities, and events in accordance with university policy. University personnel may schedule non-university events and activities through the Scheduling Services Office.
