Description
Research is all sponsored research and development activities of your institution that are separately budgeted and accounted for. Research can be funded by your own institution, the federal government, a state government, foundations, corporations, or other sources. It does not include departmental research that is separately budgeted.
Net assignable square feet (NASF) is the sum of all areas (in square feet) on all floors of a building assigned to, or available to be ssigned to, an occupant for a specific use, such as research or instruction. NASF is measured from the inside faces of walls.
Research space is the net assignable square feet of space in buildings within which research activities take place. Research facilities are located within buildings. A building is a roofed structure for permanent or temporary shelter of persons, animals, plants, materials, or equipment. As a guideline, structures should be included if they are (1) attached to a foundation, (2) roofed, (3) serviced by a utility, exclusive of lighting, and (4) a source of significant maintenance and repair activities.

Research space is equivalent to functional category 2 (Research) for facilities inventory systems based on NCES, NACUBO, or WICHE classifications. For classifications, please refer to the Postsecondary Education Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual, U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement, NCES 92-165; the 1088 NACUBO Taxonomy of Functions; or the 1072 WICHE Program Classification Structure.
