Sac State Aerial Picture

University programs that require a change or addition to program or instructional space, shall contact the Director of Space Management at (916) 278-6507 prior to proceeding with the project or completion of the Space Allocation/Change Request Form (DOC). The Space Planning Policy is authorized by ABA 08-01, dated January 1, 2008, and can be found in the University Policy Manual. 

The Director of Space Management will initially review requests for physical, functional, or capacity space changes. If the request may have impact with EO 565*, the request will proceed to the Space Planning Advisory Group (SPAG) for review and recommendation to the Vice President for Administration.

Requests for physical, functional, or capacity space changes shall be forwarded to the Director of Space Management from Facilities Management. Space Management may contact the requester directly to request information concerning the project. Customers shall not proceed with a space or instructional furniture change project or fund purchases until after the space impact of the project has been reviewed by the Director of Space Management and possibly SPAG, and space approval to proceed is confirmed.
