University Master Plans

The plan for George Mason University establishes a framework for orderly growth for what is arguably Northern Virginia’s most dynamic institution. It supports the concept for a distributed university, with full-service campuses in Fairfax, Manassas, and Arlington, Virginia distinguished by centers of excellence in teaching and research, and well placed to serve the needs of a rapidly growing but dispersed local population. It supports strengthening the ties between research, industry and economic development. It provides the strategies for consolidating the University’s campuses as mature academic communities, serving as destinations and cultural resources for a larger world, and manifesting a clear and distinguished identity.

Space Management

Role of the Office of Space Management

The role of George Mason University’s Office of Space Management is to facilitate the space request and allocation process; to maintain an accurate space inventory for internal and external reporting purposes; and to provide analysis and information to University administrators responsible for planning and implementing projects that support the instructional, research, and administrative support space needs of the University.

The goal of the Office of Space Management is to:

• Effectively distribute space to meet instructional, research, and administrative support space needs
• Assure that space is being utilized as efficiently as possible to meet not only individual unit needs, but overall University needs
• Provide high quality administrative, instructional, and research facilities that meet the University’s missions and goals

The Office of Space Management maintains the University’s space inventory in an on-line space database. Floor plans for each building in Mason’s inventory are available via the on-line space database. Floor plans are updated to reflect changes due to renovation projects, and buildings are added to the space database as new construction is completed.  The space database also includes space data (building, room number, square feet, department occupancy, room use, etc.) for all assignable square feet (ASF) within each building.  Updates to space data are coordinated with departmental and unit space liaisons as occupant assignment or room use changes.  Space Management coordinates with the Office of Institutional Research and Reporting to submit the bi-annual space inventory and classroom/class lab utilization report, to the State Council for Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV).  Therefore, maintaining an accurate inventory of space on and off-campus is essential for both reporting and planning purposes.
