Space Planning & Allocation


If the need arises for additional office, lab, or other space outside a single department, but within the School of Arts and Sciences, the Office of Administration will work in conjunction with the appropriate Area Dean to identify a possible solution.

For additional space needs beyond the School of Arts and Sciences, the Office of Administration will work directly with other Rutgers schools and/or central administrative departments to explore alternatives and options. In the event that we are unable to resolve our space needs directly with other schools and departments, we will seek the assistance of the office of the Executive Vice President for Administrative Affairs and submit a formal request for additional space.

Please provide the Office of Administration with as much lead time as possible once you identify as space need because space negotiations can be time-consuming and sometimes involve multiple parties.

Often, changes in space assignments require additional furniture and/or renovations. If resources are available, the Office of Administration will obtain preliminary approval prior to moving forward. Once approval is in place the Office of Administration is available to coordinate with SAS academic departments and units, the central Facilities department, and furniture vendors on the design, renovations, and furnishings for the required space.
