UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDACAMPUS MASTER PLAN, 2020-2030ACADEMIC FACILITIESDATA & ANALYSISI.Space InventoryA.Relationship to Campus Master Plan Future Land UsesIn the University of Florida Educational Plant Survey, the analysis of indoor academic space is basedon a calculation of net assignable square feet (NASF) of facilities that provide academic functions.According to the Educational Plant Survey, the Space Needs model applied is the State UniversitySystem Space Needs Generation Formula (formula). The formula was designed to recognize spacerequirements for a site based on academic program offerings, student enrollment by level, andresearch programs. The most important measure in the formula is full‐time‐equivalent studentenrollment. Other important measures include positions, research activity, and library materials. Thefollowing space categories are included in the formula:InstructionalClassroom FacilitiesTeaching Laboratory FacilitiesResearch Laboratory FacilitiesAcademic SupportStudy FacilitiesInstructional Media FacilitiesAuditorium/Exhibition FacilitiesTeaching Gymnasium FacilitiesInstitutional SupportOffice/Computer FacilitiesCampus Support FacilitiesIn terms of the campus master plan future land use classifications, a facility within theAcademic/Research land use category will have a preponderance of Instructional space; however,Academic Support and Institutional Support space will typically be in the same building. Withinthe Educational Plant Survey, libraries include study facilities and instructional media that areclassified within the Academic Support space type but are identified in the Academic/Researchland use classification of the campus master plan. Auditorium/Exhibition spaces may be foundwithin academic buildings in the Academic/Research land use classification or within museumsand performance centers placed in the Cultural land use. Teaching Gymnasiums are typicallyincluded in buildings that fall within the Academic/Research land use classification; however,some such facilities also serve student recreation and may be present in the Active Recreationland use.B.Academic Space DefinitionsThe State University System of Florida Space Needs Formula provides definitions for eachuniversity space type to be used in the analysis of space need and capital project justification. Asdescribed above, these space definitions do not directly translate to campus master plan land useclassifications.Classroom Facilities. A classroom is defined as a room used for classes and not tied to aspecific subject or discipline by equipment in the room or the configuration of the room.Included in this category are rooms generally used for scheduled instruction that require nospecial, restrictive equipment or configuration.These include lecture rooms, lecturedemonstration rooms, seminar rooms, and general purpose classrooms. Related service areassuch as projection rooms, telecommunications control booths, preparation rooms, closets, storageareas, etc. are included in this category if they serve classrooms.Teaching Laboratory Facilities. A teaching laboratory is defined as a room used primarily forscheduled classes that require special purpose equipment or a specific room configuration forstudent participation, experimentation, observation, or practice in an academic discipline.Included in this category are rooms generally called teaching laboratories, instructional shops,PAGE 3-1JUNE 2020

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDACAMPUS MASTER PLAN, 2020-2030ACADEMIC FACILITIESDATA & ANALYSIScomputer laboratories, drafting rooms, band rooms, choral rooms, music practice rooms, languagelaboratories, studios, theater stage areas used primarily for instruction, instructional healthlaboratories, and similar specially designed or equipped room if they are used primarily or groupinstruction in formally or regularly scheduled classes. Related service areas are also included inthis category.Research Laboratory Facilities. A research laboratory is defined as a room used primarily forlaboratory experimentation, research or training in research methods, professional research andobservation, or structured creative activity within a specific program. Included in this categoryare labs used for experiments, testing or "dry runs" in support of instructional, research or publicservice activities. Non class public service laboratories which promote new knowledge inacademic fields are included in this category (e.g., animal diagnostic laboratories and cooperativeextension laboratories). Related service areas that directly serve these laboratories are included inthis category.Research Faculty Space needs are generated by discipline for Educational and General (E&G)and Contract and Grant (C&G) faculty.Graduate Students Space needs are generated by discipline for beginning and advanced graduatestudent FTE.Study Facilities. Study facilities include study rooms, stack areas, processing rooms, and studyservice areas.Instructional Media Facilities. Instructional Media rooms are used for the production ordistribution of multimedia materials or signals. Included in this category are rooms generallycalled TV studios, radio studios, sound studios, photo studios, video or audio cassette andsoftware production or distribution rooms, and media centers. Service areas such as film, tape, orcassette libraries or storage areas, media equipment storage rooms, recording rooms, engineeringmaintenance rooms, darkrooms, and studio control booths are also included in this category.Auditorium/Exhibition Facilities. Auditorium/exhibition facilities are defined as roomsdesigned and equipped for the assembly of many persons for such events as dramatic, musical,devotional, livestock judging, or commencement activities or rooms or areas used for exhibitionof materials, works of art, artifacts, etc. and intended for general use by faculty, students, staff,and the public.Service areas such as check rooms, ticket booths, dressing rooms, projection booths, propertystorage, make-up rooms, costume and scenery shops and storage, green rooms, multimedia andtelecommunications control rooms, workrooms, and vaults are also included in this category.PAGE 3-2JUNE 2020

A teaching gymnasium is defined as a room or area used bystudents, staff, or the public for athletic or physical education activities. Included in this categoryare rooms generally referred to as gymnasiums, basketball courts, handball courts, squash courts,wrestling rooms, weight or exercise rooms, racquetball courts, indoor swimming pools, indoorputting areas, indoor ice rinks, indoor tracks, indoor stadium fields, and field houses. Serviceareas such as locker rooms, shower rooms, ticket booths, rooms for dressing, equipment, supply,storage, first-aid, towels, etc. are also included in this category.C.Academic Space Needs in the Educational Plant SurveyBased upon space definitions and formulas in the Educational Plant Survey (EPS), additionalspace is needed in all facilities that are included in the Academic/Research andAcademic/Research-Outdoor land use categories during a five-year period to 2024 as can be seenin the table below. These space needs are only through the year 2024, and do not include teachingand research areas that are unique to the University of Florida when compared to other StateUniversity System schools such as agricultural sciences, veterinary medicine, engineering andmedicine. These, and other academic pursuits at the University of Florida, have unique space andequipment needs that do not necessarily fit within the statewide formulas. Much of the academicsupport need identified in the Educational Plant Survey falls under the category of “study” andidentifies shortages in library resources that will be addressed in the Academic/Research Element.The space need identified in the following table accounts for funded projects under constructionor in planning in 2019 including FLM Special Collections, Central Energy Plant and the DataScience & Information Technology (DSIT)Building.PAGE 3-3JUNE 2020


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDACAMPUS MASTER PLAN, 2020-2030II.ACADEMIC FACILITIESDATA & ANALYSISCampus Master PlanThe Campus Master Plan defines the Academic/Research Land Use in two differentclassifications. These are intended to segregate those areas targeted for development of typicalclassroom and laboratory buildings from those academic and research pursuits that utilizepastures, arboretums, orchards, row crops, greenhouses and other such outdoor facilities. The2015-2025 Future Land Use Element identifies these land use classifications as follows: Academic/Research: The Academic/Research land use classification identifies those areason the campus that are appropriate for academic and research building development.Adjacent land use and proximity to other Academic/Research uses are primary locationcriteria for Academic/Research in order to consolidate these functions into convenient,walkable clusters of development. Extension, distance and continuing education functionsare included in the Academic/Research land use classification and are encouraged to belocated on the campus perimeter or satellite properties if they require frequent visitor access.Ancillary uses associated with an academic/research facility, such as integrated food andvending services, utilities, service drives, user and disabled parking, and functional openspace are allowed within the Academic/Research land use classification. Developmentdensities, heights and patterns in the Academic/Research land use shall respect pedestrianconnections, historic context (where applicable), adjacencies to other land uses and creationof functional open space while maximizing the efficient use of building footprints to the extentfeasible within construction budgets and program requirements. Academic/Research Outdoor: The Academic/Research Outdoor land use classificationidentifies those areas on the campus that are appropriate for agriculture and livestockactivities providing teaching, research and extension that require close proximity to othermain campus resources or are located on satellite properties away from the main campus.Allowable structure development shall typically include greenhouses, pole barns, equipmentstorage sheds, and other field support buildings associated with an agricultural, silviculture,aquaculture, livestock or other outdoor teaching and research use.Office,academic/research support, and laboratory structures shall be allowable on conditions thattheir size, scope and function are related to and compatible with agriculture and livestockactivities. Ancillary uses associated with an academic/research outdoor activity, such asutilities, service drives, user and disabled parking, and functional open space are allowedwithin the Academic/Research Outdoor land use classification.The Future Land Use map for 2020-2030 identifies 278 acres in the Academic/Research LandUse classification, and 303 acres in the Academic/Research-Outdoor Land Use classification.This is an increase of 5.4 acres from that identified in the campus master plan as last amended inJune 2018.Based on the Campus Master Plan Future Land Use map, the university contained 11,629,890gross square feet of building space in the Academic/Research Land Use classification as of June2020. The 10-year Capital Projects list includes approximately 1,255,000 gross square feet of netnew space to be constructed within the Academic/Research and Academic/Research-OutdoorLand Use during in the 10-year plan horizon. Only a very small amount of this space, includinggreenhouses and a livestock pavilion are anticipated in the Academic/Research-Outdoor areas.PAGE 3-5JUNE 2020

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDACAMPUS MASTER PLAN, 2020-2030III.ACADEMIC FACILITIESDATA & ANALYSISEvening Class OfferingsExtending the hours of class offerings is one strategy to increase efficiency of classroomutilization and spread the impacts of parking and transportation beyond the typical operating peakhours. The University of Florida Campus Master Plan, 2000-2010, included a recommendation inGoal 2, Policy 1.1 for increasing night class offerings as a means of dispersing traffic impacts.The University’s class offerings after 5:00 PM have fluctuated over time but present a generallydeclining trend in both number of sections and total enrollment since 2005.Enrollment for Evening Sections, 01420152016201720182019Section -1613-943108-1912-142-982485693-1151-1845Notes: Source: Fall 2005-2008 submitted IAF; Fall 2009-2019 Submitted SIFYear: Fall term.
