About Us

Facilities Information Services is responsible for the data stewardship of all space, infrastructure, and physical development for the university’s 20 million gross square feet of space across 2,100 acres. 


In partnership with university administration and the University Space Committee, Facilities Information Services is responsible for space assignment, space planning and coordination, and recommendations regarding requests for campus space.


Facilities Information Services also supports the campus long-range master planning needs and the annual on-going use of campus space.

What We Do

  • Assign room numbers for new or renovated space according to the university’s standards
  • Assist in room and building name assignments and changes
  • Support construction delivery
  • Provide space reports as needed including HEFMA, NFS, and the Facilities Governance Report
  • Monitor renovation projects, in conjunction with project managers, which will impact space use and/or floor plans
