University of Texas Rio Grande Valley - Campus Space Standards

The purpose of this Campus Space Standards is to provide consistent guidelines for space allocation across the entire UTRGV system in Edinburg, Harlingen, and Brownsville and other locations with university-based space needs. The metrics will be used to evaluate equitable space at the departmental, college, administrative, and campus-wide scale and will be provided to all design and planning teams for use in defining space needs for all renovations and new facilities within the UTRGV system.

The Space Standards included space for offices, office support, meeting rooms and classrooms, healthcare, research laboratories, and student housing. The Standards included room diagrams and detailed criteria for each room type. A total of sixty-five room types were defined within the Standards.
