Activity-based Space Planning

Activity-Based Space Planning:


Benefits of an Activity-based Space Planning:

Greater engagement with all staff

  • Being close to the people you work closest with, in spaces that allow you to communicate and collaborate.

More options for how you work

  • Focus areas, huddle rooms, cafe seating and most importantly, a neighborhood you and your department can call home.

Less time spent in a sedentary work environment

  • More options, more places to work mean less time stuck in one place.

Greater work environment flexibility

  • The space allows for the choice of when, where and how to work based on the preference of the employee.

Differences between an activity-based space and a traditional office:

  • More options for work environment
  • Better collaboration between departments and units
  • More cost effective, saving valuable space and resources to further the university mission.
