Room Type Codes

Unassignable Areas - Not Included in Our Survey (areas such as lobby areas, stairwells, public restrooms, hallways, etc.)

Assignable Areas - Assignable areas are those portions of a building that are available for assignment to building occupants. If the space changed room type during the year, please note this in the Notes field.  Clearly, rooms of the same or similar physical characteristics can be used for a variety of purposes. The physical characteristics of an office, a small conference room, a seminar room, and even a dormitory room are very similar, if not identical; it is the use of the room that is the distinguishing factor. Therefore, respondents should consider the principal or primary purpose of a space when reviewing the appropriate Room Type Code.
