UC Merced Space Planning and Allocation

Physical space is one of UC Merced’s most valuable – and expensive – resources; and like universities across the country, UC Merced has been examining ways to improve the nature and utilization of its buildings in order to advance its teaching, research and public service mission as efficiently as possible.

To guide the campus through the space planning and allocation process, UC Merced’s academic and administrative leadership will be asked to participate as members of a new entity known as the UC Merced Space Planning and Allocation Board (SPA Board).  

The Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor and Senior Advisor to the Chancellor have issued a detailed memorandum that outlines the launch of this collaborative, campuswide framework that will be used to guide the use of UC Merced's space resources as the campus moves forward.
