Space Planning & Management

Space Planning & Management at Missouri S&T is responsible for tracking assignment and utilization of space on campus. Using this data, S&T is able to monitor and make adjustments to space utilization. Periodically, Space Management performs space surveys by reaching out to campus faculty and staff to verify the information we have is accurate.

Floorplans of campus buildings are provided on our website.

Space Policies, Guidelines, & Space Request Form

Space Policies, Guidelines, & Space Request Form have been established to assist in the process of allocating and reallocating space. These are referenced before assignment and during the design process to ensure the appropriate amount of space is assigned for the function and utilization the space will have.


Space policies define policies for allocation and the procedures for requesting space on campus.


In addition to applicable building codes and operational considerations, these Space Guidelines are used in both renovation and new construction design.

Request Form

To request additional space on campus, complete the space request form. The form will then be presented to the Space Committee for consideration.

Campus Layout and Space Planning Open Forum

On April 27 and May 11, 2014, Vice Chancellor Walter Branson hosted an open forum to discuss the campus layout and space planning initiatives at Missouri S&T.
