Campus space planning for September

  Public
By:

Since its establishment in 1995, Royal Roads has optimized and maximized its use of existing space, reconfiguring and modernizing where feasible in alignment with the learning, teaching and research model.

As outlined in the five-year business plan, we have anticipated increasing pressures exerted on the existing physical infrastructure. We completed a space and furniture inventory at the end of the last fiscal year and have been working with the planning principles below to manage changes in capacity, resources and department requests. 

Immediate campus space planning needs were amplified during the Sherman Jen Building project, which involved decanting the original Mews building of its 55 staff occupants (2016) and moving a different group of 55 staff and faculty into the new Sherman Jen Building (2018).

We will continue to keep you updated on upcoming office moves around campus. If your workspace will be affected by future moves, please be assured you will be informed by your manager and our team will connect with you with planning details.

Coming Soon 

The workstations dedicated to associate faculty use, currently located in Grant 136, will move to Millward Annex 107. Nestled in the trees beside the Library and close to the campus core, this space has its own kitchen and is surrounded by windows. Associate faculty will be notified prior to the move.

Royal Roads University Campus-Wide Space Planning Principles

  1. Allocation and use of space will meet a “duty of care” imperative related to barrier-free accessibility and the health and safety of facility users. This imperative will also reflect the university’s responsibilities to maintain and protect Hatley Park National Historic Site and its buildings. Allocation decisions will take into account the impact of university functions and activities on building condition and lifecycle, and consider seismic vulnerabilities of individual facilities. 
  1. Academic program delivery spaces (classrooms, breakouts, other relevant spaces – formal and informal), faculty and academic support functions should be configured in and around the academic core. 
  1. Allocation of space to academic units should align with the theme of interdisciplinarity, fostering the integration of faculties, and promoting synergies and collaboration. Private office spaces may be allocated based on program/operational requirements. 
  1. Space for administrative and operational functions would be best situated adjacent to the core unless required in/near the core to meet service requirements, for efficiency, to benefit from adjacencies, or to align with overarching strategic objectives. 
  1. Allocation of space should take into account the benefits of adjacencies, efficiency of operation, optimization of unallocated spaces, and alignment with and advancement of the university’s strategic objectives. These factors will be balanced against cost implications (capital and operating). 
  1. Allocation of space will minimize the impact on existing student accommodation spaces, enabling the university to maximize the deployment of accommodation spaces as originally intended.
