Space Management

The Space Management department serves as the central repository for information regarding the university’s institutional space. This information comes in many different forms including floors and data available from the University of Cincinnati Space Management System (UCSMS), data related to our exterior infrastructure which is maintained in the University of Cincinnati Geographic Information System (UCGIS) and the large scale floor plans (blue prints) and other documents maintained in UC Plan Room.  We are also system administration for the Series 25 Scheduling software.

Our mission is to maintain the most accurate possible institutional space data and make that data available to the university community as a resource for making decisions that positively impact our university. In addition to maintaining the data, Space Management also works in conjunction with Campus Planning+Design+Construction and other university departments to use the data to make the best possible decisions regarding the university’s built environment.
