Virginia Tech Space Management Policy November 2018

As part of the Office of University Planning, Space Management leads the initiative to evaluate and allocate space and land in support of the university’s strategic plan. Space Management is responsible for space policy, facilitating requests for new space, space analysis and programming, and supporting the University Space Committee and the Executive Space Committee.

Space Request Process

Step 1: Contact your space representative: Space representatives have been appointed to serve as the point of contact and liaison between their area and Space Management. These representatives manage space requests and maintain accurate space data for the units within their purview. View the Space Representative List.
