Campus Facilities Inventory

Inform Your Campus Planning Efforts!

From hybrid learning classrooms to flexible work environments, college and university campuses are facing a lot of change. Data about facilities and space utilization are critical to making strategic decisions for your campus.

The Campus Facilities Inventory (CFI) is an annual campus planning benchmarking initiative brought to you by SCUP in partnership with brightspot strategy. It collects data from colleges and universities about current space use and planned facilities changes. From this data, the CFI Report shares findings, trends, and data tables sorted by institution type, size, and location.

What the CFI report covers.

The CFI report consists of three sections that provide a holistic picture of today — while enabling institutions to crowd-source a vision for the future. The three sections include:

  1. Current space use data
  2. Anticipated changes to space
  3. Qualitative space changes

Data is reported only in aggregate, protecting the privacy of each institution. Initial reporting focuses on findings and comparison tables by institution type (i.e., four-year public, four-year private, and two-year public), location (i.e., urban, suburban, rural), and size (i.e., enrollment, ­>1,000, 1,000 – 4,999, 5,000 – 19,999, <20,000).
