310 Staff Office An office used by staff in the performance of their regularly assigned duties. Include rooms generally occupied by Classified, Wage-Worker or Temporary Hire personnel including clerical, stenographic, receptionist and also any management personnel not included as an administrative position. Included in this category is space where any machines, files and reception areas are in the same room with clerical personnel and where such space is incidental to the office function. Large rooms such as glass shops, painting shops, etc., which have a desk for a technician or staff member are classified according to the primary purpose of the room rather than a staff office. The office portion may be prorated out, however.

Faculty Offices are by definition used for Instructional Support. They may be prorated with Office Research Lab, if they are also used for Departmental or Sponsored Research. Faculty Offices may also be prorated with Staff Offices when occupants use the space to provide both instructional support and administration.
312 Administrative Office A room or suite of rooms used by administrative personnel for the performance of administrative duties.  Include rooms generally referred to as the offices of presidents, business managers, all deans, associate and assistant deans serving the entire institution (such as deans of administration, faculty and graduate school), registrars, directors of admissions, dean of students, placement directors and director of student counseling.  Do not include clerical, stenographic or other general office space.

Waiting, interview, and testing spaces are included as Office Service if they serve a specific office or office area and not a classroom laboratory or clinic. A student counseling (nonhealth) testing room should be coded as Office Service (315). A receptionist room that includes a waiting area should be coded as Office (310). Lounges that serve specific office areas and that are not generally available to the public should be coded as Office Service (315). Centralized mail rooms, shipping or receiving areas, and duplicating or printing shops that serve more than one building (or department or school, etc.) or that are campus-wide in scope should be classified Central Service (750).

350 Conference Room A space serving an office complex and used primarily for staff meetings and departmental activities. A conference space is typically equipped with tables and chairs. Normally it is used by a specific organizational unit or office area, whereas Meeting Rooms (680) are used for general purposes such as community or campus group meetings not associated with a particular department. If a space is used for both conference and meeting space functions, then the space should be classified according to its principal use. A conference space is distinguished from facilities such as seminar rooms, lecture rooms, and Classrooms (110) because it is used primarily for activities other than scheduled classes. A conference space is intended primarily for formal gatherings, whereas a lounge is intended for relaxation and casual interaction. This category includes teleconference spaces. Does not include classrooms, seminar rooms, lecture rooms (see Classrooms-110), auditoria (see Assembly-610), departmental lounges (see Office Service-315), open lounges (see Lounge-650), and Meeting Rooms (680).
