Space Requests and Real Estate Leases

CDFD coordinates the university's space request process. All requests for space, including leases (new leases, amendments and renewals to existing leases) must go through the University Space Committee for approval prior to beginning the process of negotiating a lease or acquiring additional program space. The Space Committee meets monthly, so please request space with significant advance notice to allow for approval, review by all necessary departments and negotiation with the landlord.

Initiate a Space Request 

To initiate a space or lease request please complete the online CMU Space Request form.  Upon receipt of your form CDFD will be in touch to set up an initial meeting with the department stakeholders to discuss your space needs.
