Campus Facilities Inventory (CFI)

Inform Your Campus Planning Efforts!

The Campus Facilities Inventory (CFI) is a campus planning benchmarking initiative brought to you by SCUP in partnership with brightspot strategy.

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 CFI collected annual data from colleges and universities about current space use and planned facilities changes between 2021-2023. From this data, the annual CFI reports share findings, trends, and data tables sorted by institution type, size, and location.

Institutions that submitted their data to the CFI received a free copy of the CFI report and access to anonymized data tables, providing them with dynamic data relevant to their specific campus.

Thank you to our partner

The 2023 data collection process completed the last benchmark year of this iteration of CFI. SCUP extends a huge thank you to our CFI partner, brightspot strategy, a Buro Happold Company. Without the support of our partnership, the Campus Facilities Inventory initiative would not have been possible.
