                                 ROOM TYPE DEFINITIONS
Room Type is a classification of a room by architectural design type and is assigned based on primary
use. Each room can only be assigned one room type. Although most rooms fall readily into one room
type, in some cases, individual rooms or groups of rooms have multiple uses (e.g., classroom and
assembly room).

Room Type should not be confused with Function. Room Type is based on the 1992 Post Secondary
Education Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual (FICM), published by the National Center for
Education Statistics (NCES), which provides the conceptual and definitional relationships for reporting
on the major components of postsecondary physical facilities. Function is based on the Federal Office
of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-21, titled “Principles for Determining Cost Applicable to
Grants, Contracts and Other Agreements with Educational Institutions.”

Below is the list of room types. Room type definitions are presented on the pages that follow.

        SPACE INVENTORY INSTRUCTIONS


                               ROOM TYPE DEFINITIONS
DEFINITIONS:

1xx   CLASSROOM FACILITIES

      Classroom Facilities include rooms used for scheduled instruction that are not tied to a specific
      subject or discipline by equipment in the room. Classrooms may be furnished with special
      equipment appropriate to a specific area of study, if the equipment does not render the room
      unsuitable for use by classes in other areas of study. This category includes classrooms that
      are controlled by individual academic departments, as well as classrooms that are controlled by
      the Registrar.

      110     General Classroom
              A room that is used for classes and is configured with “traditional” classroom seating.
              Examples: classrooms or lecture halls with fixed or moveable tablet armchairs or tables
              and chairs.

      112     Seminar Room
              A room used for instructional purposes and configured like a conference or meeting
              room.
              Note: This room type code may also be used for a room that serves as a conference
              room for an academic department, as long as it is also used for scheduled classes.

      115     Classroom Service
              A room that directly serves one or more general classrooms or seminar rooms as an
              extension of the activities in those rooms.
              Examples: projection rooms, AV equipment rooms, dressing rooms, rehearsal space,
              observer rooms, telecommunication control booths, preparation rooms, coatrooms,
              closets and other storage space, and equipment issue rooms, if they serve general
              classrooms or seminar rooms.

2xx   LABORATORY FACILITIES

      Laboratory Facilities include rooms that house special purpose equipment, or that has a specific
      configuration that supports the instruction, research, or training activities of a particular discipline
      or closely related group of disciplines. Laboratories may be found in all fields of study, and the
      activities within them can be individual or group in nature. Laboratory facilities are subdivided
      into labs used for scheduled instruction, labs which support instruction but are generally
      unscheduled, labs used for research, computer labs (which are even further subdivided based
      on usage), and training labs.

      210     Class Lab
              A room used primarily for regularly scheduled classes that require special purpose
              equipment or a specific room configuration for student participation, experimentation,
              observation, or practice in an academic discipline. The special equipment in this room
              usually limits the room’s use by other disciplines.
              Examples: teaching laboratories, instructional shops, (group) music practice rooms,
              language labs, studios, instructional health laboratories, and theater stage areas, if they
              are used primarily for group instruction in regularly scheduled classes.

      of a particular discipline, and access to these rooms is usually limited to a specific group
      of students.

      primarily used for individualized or unscheduled instruction.

      methods, or professional research and observation. The activities in these rooms are
      generally confined to faculty, research associates, and graduate students and are
      applicable to any academic discipline.
      Examples: labs used for experimentation, application, observation, composition, or
      research training in a structured environment directed by one or more faculty or principal
      investigator(s), labs used for experiments in support of instructional, research, or public
      service activities.

      rooms, deep freeze rooms, autoclave, and centrifuge rooms), instrumentation rooms
      (balances, statistical machines, lasers, microscopes), photo labs, darkrooms, general
      workshops, lockers, lab conference rooms, lab computer rooms, material storage,

      270    Departmental Computer Lab
             A room generally used for scheduled or unscheduled instruction, which is furnished with
             personal computer equipment (usually fixed workstations) to service the needs of a
             particular discipline.
             Examples: labs which require specialized hardware or software for student participation,
             experimentation, observation, or practice in a course or field of study.

      280    Public Access Computing Lab
             A room furnished with personal computer equipment (usually fixed workstations) that is
             generally unscheduled and open for use by faculty or students at their convenience.
             These labs are usually staffed by University personnel, and are assigned to CSSD.
             Examples: public labs open for use on a walk-in basis.

      290    Technical Training Lab

3xx   OFFICE FACILITIES

      Office Facilities include individual or multi-person work areas which support the academic,
      administrative, and service functions of the University. These facilities are subdivided based
      upon the structure and configuration of the office space. Also included in this category are
      departmental circulation areas and departmental conference or meeting rooms.

      310    Private Office
             An enclosed room, with permanent, structural walls, that is used to house one or more
             individuals at desks, tables, or workstations.
             Note: The Private Office room type may be used even if there are multiple people in the
             room. The key here is that the office space is an actual room (as opposed to a cubicle,
             etc.). The determination of the type of office should be based on the structure of the
             space.

      313    Open Office/Reception Area
             An open office space that is used to house one or more individuals at desks, tables, or

             furniture.
             Examples: large, open rooms with multiple cubicles or carrels, open reception areas with
             one or more desks for secretaries or receptionists.

             departmentally controlled and only indirectly accessible to the public.
             Note: If there are desks or workstations positioned in a corridor, this room type code

             to a particular subject or discipline by equipment. Study rooms are primarily used by
             students or staff for learning at their convenience, although access may be restricted by
             a controlling unit.
             Examples: study or reading rooms located in libraries, residential facilities, academic or
             student service facilities, study carrel and booth areas, and similar rooms that are

             areas, bookbinding rooms, on-line search rooms, multimedia materials processing areas,

             support of library functions.
