The space survey validates the university’s space inventory. This data is used as a critical component of indirect cost recovery (ICR), for university and departmental space management and planning, and as a basis for state and federal reporting. Each department is responsible for the accuracy of its data.

The departmental Space Survey must be completed using the Space Management Module within M-Pathways. Contact space@umich.edu for details. Review the data for your department and make updates as needed. Your department is responsible for the accuracy of its data. Report all changes as they appear during the survey period, except room use function codes. These codes and their corresponding percentages must reflect activity averaged over the entire fiscal year, which ends June 30 2017.

  • Room number

  • Room square feet

  • Room type code

  • Room sub-type code

  • Department ID
