Space Verification

University Facilities Information (UFI) acts as the data stewards for enterprise space data across the university. In order to collect and verify key information, UFI conducts periodic audits and on-site walkthroughs. 

Comprehensive Building & Space Verifications

UFI will periodically work with a network of contacts across dozens of departments to conduct a comprehensive verification process focused on key space data within University properties. 

Completion of this process ensures a baseline of quality and accuracy in our space database and is a supplement to the ongoing work that UFI does to update space data through integration into construction, renovation and human resource processes. 

UFI began the first iteration of this comprehensive space verification process in July 2016 and it was completed in April 2017.  Some of the key results from our work are displayed below. For more information, please review the executive summary of the verification effort .

Ad-Hoc Quality Control Verifications

Throughout the year, UFI solicits updates from building and departmental contacts to update important data such as occupancy and space usage. Most outreach for these ad-hoc verifications is done via e-mails sent from but we will also conduct walk-throughs in some instances. If you have any questions about information being requested or about the purpose of a walk-through, please contact Andrew Sama at
