500 - Special Use Facilities
Definition: A room or area used by Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and ancillary units for military training and/or instructional activities.
Description: Rooms that are obviously designed or equipped for use in a military training or instructional program, such as indoor drill areas, indoor rifle ranges, and specially designed or equipped military science rooms, are included in this category. Ancillary units may include special rifle and drill teams.
Limitations: Conventional room use types such as Classrooms (110), Class Laboratories (210), Offices (310), and Study Rooms (410) are designated as such, even though they are located in an armory building. Military supply and weapons rooms are coded Armory Service (515).
515 Armory Service
Definition: A room that directly serves an armory facility as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: This category includes supply rooms, weapons rooms, and military equipment storage rooms.
Limitations: Rooms directly serving conventional primary activity areas are classified with the appropriate corresponding service code (e.g., 115-Classroom Service, 215-Class Laboratory Service, 315-Office Service, and 455-Study Service).
520 Athletic/Physical Education
Definition: A room or area used by students, staff, or the public for athletic or physical education activities.
Description: Includes gymnasia, basketball courts, handball courts, squash courts, wrestling rooms, weight or exercise rooms, racquetball courts, indoor swimming pools, indoor putting areas, indoor ice rinks, indoor tracks, indoor stadium fields, and field houses. This category includes rooms used to teach dancing and bowling only if they are part of the physical education instructional program.
Limitations: This room use code does not distinguish instructional from intercollegiate, intramural, or recreational use of these areas. Additional classification through function and academic discipline codes makes this distinction.
Classroom Facilities (100 series), Laboratory Facilities (200 series), Office Facilities (300 series) and other primary room use categories are coded as such, even though these areas may be located in an athletic or physical education building. Permanent spectator seating areas associated with athletic facilities are coded 523. Outdoor athletic areas, such as outdoor tennis and basketball courts, archery ranges, golf courses, and other outdoor fields, do not meet the definition of buildings and, therefore, are not assignable area. Recreational or amusement areas such as billiards rooms, game or arcade rooms, bowling alleys, table tennis rooms, ballrooms, chess and card playing rooms, and hobby and music listening areas are classified Recreation (670), if they are not used for instructional purposes.
523 Athletic Facilities Spectator Seating
Definition: The seating area used by students, staff, or the public to watch athletic events.
Description: Includes indoor permanent or fixed seating areas in gymnasia, field houses, ice arenas, covered stadium, natatorium, and cycling arenas.
Limitations: Does not include temporary or movable seating areas (e.g., movable bleachers). Outdoor permanent seating is not assignable space although it may contain assignable areas under it (e.g., locker rooms, offices, etc.).
525 Athletic/Physical Education Service
Definition: A room that directly serves an athletic or physical education facility as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: Includes locker rooms; shower rooms; non-office coaches' rooms; ticket booths; and rooms for dressing, equipment, supply, storage, first-aid, skate-sharpening, towels, etc.
Limitations: Does not include public rest rooms which should be classified as nonassignable building service space. Rooms which directly serve offices, classrooms, laboratories, etc., are classified with the appropriate corresponding service code. Cashiers' desks serving recreation facilities (see 670) are classified Recreation Service (675). Central ticket outlets serving multiple facilities or services are classified as Merchandising (660).
530 Media Production
Definition: A room used for the production or distribution of multimedia materials or signals.
Description: Includes rooms generally called TV studios, radio studios, sound studios, photo studios, video or audio cassette and software production or distribution rooms, and media centers. These rooms have a clearly defined production or distribution function that serves a broader area (e.g., department, entire campus) than would a typical service room.
Limitations: Does not include rooms that merely store media materials and equipment. Such rooms would be coded as Media Production Service (535) rooms if serving the primary production or distribution room (see 530), or the appropriate service category for the room(s) they serve. Radio or TV broadcasting areas and other media rooms used for teaching broadcasting to students for instructional purposes should be coded as laboratories (see 210, 220). This classification also does not include centralized computer-based data processing and telecommunications equipment facilities (see 710).
535 Media Production Service
Definition: A room that directly serves a media production or distribution room as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: The primary criterion here is that the room should serve a media production or distribution room and not another primary activity room. Examples include film, tape, or cassette libraries or storage areas; media equipment storage rooms; recording rooms; engineering maintenance rooms; darkrooms; preparation rooms; studio control booths; and other support areas that specifically serve a media production or distribution room (see 530).
Limitations: Those rooms containing media materials, equipment or operations which serve a primary activity room other than a 530 should be assigned the appropriate corresponding service code.
Definition: A room used for providing diagnosis, consultation, treatment, or other services to patients or clients in facilities other than those separately organized health care facilities related to medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, or student health care.
Description: Included are patient or client examination rooms, testing rooms, and consultation rooms. Clinics are typically associated with such educational areas as psychology, law, speech, hearing, and similar areas.
Limitations: Does not include clinics associated with student health care, student counseling services, or clinics for the medical or dental treatment of humans or animals (see 800 series). Also does not include rooms used for remedial instruction which should be classified as classrooms or laboratories (see 100 and 200 series) or testing or counseling rooms in non-health or non-discipline-related programs (see 315).
545 Clinic Service
Definition: A room that directly serves a clinic facility as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: Included are waiting rooms, observation rooms, control rooms, records rooms, and similar supporting rooms.
Limitations: Does not include rooms that serve separately organized health care facilities (see 800 series). Also does not include first-aid treatment rooms that serve other primary activity areas (e.g., 525-Athletic Or Physical Education Service, 645-Day Care Service).
Definition: A room or group of rooms used to practice, within an instructional program, the principles of certain disciplines such as teaching, child care or development, and home management or economics.
Description: The key criterion here is practice activity within an instructional program which closely simulates a real-world or occupational setting. Includes demonstration day care and development centers, laboratory schools and home economics or management houses, when these facilities are used for practice as a part of collegiate training or instruction.
Limitations: Does not include day care and development centers which are not used as part of an instructional program (see 640). This category also does not include laboratories (see 200 series) that are used for direct delivery of instruction as opposed to practice. Demonstration schools, laboratory schools, day care centers, and home management houses in which students serve as the subjects for a research study are classified as Research/Nonclass Laboratories (250).
555 Demonstration Service
Definition: A room that directly serves a demonstration facility as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: Includes facilities generally called storerooms, pantries, etc., in a home demonstration facility; and kitchens, lockers, shower rooms, etc., in a laboratory school. Similar support rooms which directly serve primary care and training areas in a demonstration day care center (see 550) are included in this category.
Limitations: Generally, the primary activity areas--such as kitchen, dining room, living room (in a home-demonstration house), or classrooms, laboratories, gymnasia that serve nursery, elementary, or secondary school students (in a laboratory school) should be designated as Demonstration (550). Primary care and training areas in a (practice) day care center are also Demonstration (550) rooms. Kitchen and food preparation rooms in a demonstration day care facility are classified as service areas. Eating or break rooms for staff in demonstration day care centers are classified as service areas; eating or training rooms for children are classified as primary activity areas (see 550).
560 Field Building
Definition: A barn or similar agricultural structure used for animal shelters or for the handling, storage, or protection of farm products, supplies, vehicles, or implements.
Description: Includes barns, animal and poultry shelters, sheds, silos, feed units, and hay storage. Structures are typically of light-frame construction with unfinished interiors and are frequently located outside the central campus area. Also includes storage space for farm vehicles and implements. Service areas that support field buildings are classified within this category.
Limitations: Animal quarters directly supporting research or instructional laboratories should be coded 570. Location of a building, on or off the main campus, is not sufficient justification for classification as a field building. Finished rooms with other uses (e.g., laboratories, classrooms, etc.) should be coded as appropriate. Does not include buildings that house nonagricultural or non-farm related vehicles (see 740).
570 Animal Quarters
Definition: A room that houses laboratory animals used for research or instructional purposes.
Description: Includes animal rooms, cage rooms, stalls, wards, and similar rooms for instruction and research.
Limitations: Animal Quarters are typically subject to the rules and regulations of agencies regarding the care and use of laboratory animals (e.g., requirements of the American Association for Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care [AAALAC]). Does not include areas for treatment of veterinary patient animals (see Health Care Facilities-800 series). Does not include agricultural field buildings sheltering animals that do not directly support instruction or research (see 560).
575 Animal Quarters Service
Definition: A room that directly serves an animal quarters facility as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: Includes feed storage rooms, feed mixing rooms, cage washing rooms, non-patient surgery rooms, casting rooms, or instrument rooms.
Limitations: Does not include areas that directly serve facilities used for the treatment of veterinary patient animals (see Health Care Facilities-800 series).
Definition: A building or room, usually composed chiefly of glass, plastic, or other light transmitting material, which is used for the cultivation or protection of plants or seedlings for research, instruction, or campus physical maintenance or improvement purposes.
Description: The primary criterion here is the combination of structural design as a greenhouse and the use for cultivation or protection. An example would be a greenhouse that serves as a laboratory or service area for a botany or vocational (e.g., horticulture) educational program. This category includes any facility serving the greenhouse function (e.g., warehouse facilities equipped with special lighting controls for the cultivation or protection of plants).
Limitations: Greenhouses that are not used for plant cultivation or protection should be classified according to specific use (e.g., a greenhouse used for central storage should be coded 730).
585 Greenhouse Service
Definition: A room that directly serves a greenhouse facility as an extension of the activities in that facility.
Description: Includes equipment or materials storage areas and rooms generally called headhouses.
Limitations: Excludes storage areas that do not directly serve greenhouses.
