Facility Information-orig

The Space Management Office collects and maintains UW-Madison facility information and is the official source of all campus facility names, numbers, and addresses.

This information is used for space assignments and room utilization reporting. Floor plans and space data are used to support academic and administrative operations, utilities, emergency preparation, and research administration.
