Making Changes

main content

If a department needs to make changes to the accommodation allocated to it by the University, the requirement must first be described, approved by the Head of Department and Dean / Senior Officer and approved by the relevant committee.

Altering or adding to your accommodation

If you need to investigate physical changes to your accommodation, please read the Space Management Policy before completing the relevant form.

  • For general changes you should complete a Statement of Need form which is located on the Estates Services tab in Pegasus.
  • If your requirement is to alter or add to your space as a result of an application for External Funding e.g. a Research Grant, please complete the Estates Requirements form

Please note that if your requirement is for fabric or servicing changes which are limited and/or minor in nature or value they should be procured as normal through a Service Request to the Estates Management Help Desk (ext. 2164).

Applications to add to or change departmental space must be approved by your Head of Department who must in turn obtain their Senior Budget Holders approval (your Dean in the case of an academic department).

A digital version of either form should be emailed to the Assistant Director of Strategy & Asset Management (Val Hunter) and the Head of Space Planning (David Pollard).

After an initial review of the contents Estates Management will forward completed Estates Requirements forms to Research and Innovation.

Future Developments

Development of an online application process for the Statement of Need and Estates Requirements forms is underway and are expected to be available during 2014.

Changing the function or occupancy of your accommodation

Changing the function or occupancy of your accommodation

The University is subject to ever increasing scrutiny from Political, Funding and Regulatory bodies. All of these require us to maintain accurate records of accommodation and to understand required changes to accommodation occupancy and use in order to demonstrate sustainable management in accordance with the University Strategic Plan.

If you need to change the recorded details of your use of rooms allocated to your department please do so using the Department Occupancy Record: http://space.estates.strath.ac.uk/secure/accommodation/

Please email David Pollard if you have any queries on these issues or on related matters of interest.
