UT Austin is committed to the efficient use of its physical resources. The goal is to consistently exceed the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board standards for the use of classrooms and laboratories. To that end, a number of space management initiatives are being implemented, including a newly established space management effort to develop metrics and benchmarks and to coordinate the work of departmental space managers.
