As leaders of colleges and universities continue to analyze changes today and plan for the future, the knowledge and insight from the SCUP community is critical. In response, SCUP is excited to announce the 2021 report.

The 2021 CFI will help college and university leaders understand not only what they have now and how it compares, but also how things might change in the future.

The 2021 Campus Facilities Inventory is now available.

What the 2021 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).

How can an institution use the CFI report?

Access critical national data on US higher education current and projected space use to
