Space Planning Recommendations For Managers


Returning to Northeastern

Northeastern Facilities Management and Campus Planning & Real Estate (CP&RE) work to provide a safe and healthy campus for all of Northeastern’s staff, faculty, researchers, students, and visitors. This guide illustrates and informs the university community of the guidelines and recommendations that have been developed to ensure a safe environment as we return to campus. This document encompasses large-scale efforts already completed throughout campus, as well as the responsiblities of groups looking to reopen their workspaces in the coming weeks and months.


The guide is informed by the overarching guidance of Northeastern resources and beyond, and frames all of this information through the lens of spatial and behavioral considerations for adapting the university. It is meant to help facilitate healthy distancing in various campus contexts, as we return to research, work, learning, and socializing on campus. The illustrations and diagrams help to visualize what the changes to these spaces may look like, and the adjustments that we will need to make to ensure proper healthy distancing. This guide will continue to be a living document that is updated as new information becomes available.


In addition to spatial guidelines, this document contains an actionable process through which departments can assess their space and receive help preparing to return to campus and their workspace.  For questions or clarifications on the content in this guide, please email [email protected].
