Space Allocation

Any need for new or additional space required to fulfill the statement of work as proposed in a proposal must be discussed and approved by appropriate administrative personnel in advance of proposal submission to the funding agency. Commitments cannot be made for space not assigned to the researcher without full approval from all necessary levels, which include the department chair, dean and/or director, and in some cases the UNM Space Allocation Committee.

UNM’s Space Management, division of Planning and Campus Development, gathers information associated with the University’s space inventory, utilization, and floor plan databases with the coordination of departmental space administrators. Space Management is the primary access point for the distribution of the data to internal and external user for various reporting needs. They have recently implemented a new system, FAMIS, to increase the utilization and availability of data to the users. For more information, visit:
