Annual Space and Capital Plan
The annual Space and Capital Plan is the culmination of each year’s space and capital planning process. It provides a cross-campus, comprehensive understanding of space needs and capital projects. The report documents all space requests and funded capital projects, identifies the strategic initiatives driving these requests and projects and provides recommendations for addressing college space needs and deferred maintenance projects.
The plan is published each winter after it's presented to UIC's Space and Capital Planning Committee (SCPC) for review. The report is published annually to ensure that campus leadership and the university community has a comprehensive understanding of all college and unit space needs, funded capital projects and recommended deferred maintenance projects so that resources can be prioritized in support of the university's strategic priorities.

PSPM Planning and Design meets with each of UIC’s 16 colleges and eight major support or auxiliary units to compile information that is included in the annual plan. The report includes a prioritized list of capital projects with committed funding plans for the Chicago and regional campuses, which includes more than 178 buildings and approximately 15 million gross square feet of space.
The generalized timeline above outlines the annual space and capital planning process.
FY23 Space and Capital Plan Heading link
The FY23 Space and Capital Plan represents the space and capital planning cycle completed throughout the 2022 calendar year and documents the strategic priorities, space needs and capital projects of each college and major unit. Developed using input from each college and unit, this plan represents the campus-wide facility space needs and funded capital projects for the forthcoming fiscal years.
FY22 Space and Capital Plan Heading link
The FY22 Space and Capital Plan represents the first time that PSPM has worked to engage all units in a coordinated, cross-campus capital planning process. It will be replicated annually to ensure the university has a comprehensive understanding of space needs and planned capital projects so that resources can be prioritized to support the university’s strategic priorities.
