Space Requests

Space Assignment & Reconfiguration

At Old Dominion University, facilities and space are viewed as an institutional asset and critical resource, which must be developed and managed in response to the institution's programs, goals and objectives.

The space needs of academic and support departments are constantly changing within the University. In order to effectively identify, assess, and realign University space within current and projected academic and support facilities all assignment, reassignment, reconfiguration, renovation or reallocation of space must follow the Space Request procedure and be formally approved by the University Space Committee. Adherence to the procedure assists with the overall planning and decision processes at the university.

All requests for space planning assistance and requests for new or reallocation of space should be submitted by using the appropriate Space Request Form.
