UT Austin continues to demonstrate efficient stewardship of resources by minimizing administrative costs wherever possible. Our goal is to remain well below the THECB Group target of <6%.

Space Usage Efficiency (SUE)

53. Space usage efficiency measure of the effectiveness and efficiency of existing teaching space utilization. Classroom and lab passing score is 75 and overall passing score is 150.

Classroom space use efficiency 75 75
Lab space use efficiency 84 84
Overall space use efficiency 159 159
 

Our goal is to consistently exceed the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board standards for use of classrooms and laboratories. To that end, a number of space management initiatives are being implemented, including a space management governance structure and projects to develop metrics and benchmarks and to coordinate the work of departmental space managers. In addition, new information systems are being deployed to facilitate easier and more accurate maintenance of facilities data and its use in strategic decision-making.
