University of Nebraska Space Guidelines and Land Guidelines. These space guidelines are a compilation of guidelines used by a number of higher education institutions. They have been adapted for use in the University of Nebraska. The purpose of the space guidelines and utilization goals is to form the basis for translating predictor elements of an academic or support program into a defined space. The result of applying the various space guidelines represents a “boundary” or “envelope” space requirement for an administrative unit and for support apace to complement the administrative unit’s program. Design and size of specific rooms with an administrative unit’s generated space “envelope” must be addressed on an individual room basis. The space guidelines should be used in the development of programs for new and remodeled space.
