Several space migration projects have been completed over the past year which will provide multiple opportunities to bring departmental units together. Some might be wondering when the relocations will happen and who is moving where. You can find these answers and more on the Space Migration website. Detailed floor plans have been provided online to show what areas are affected by the space migration project. The goal of this process is to assist the university in reaching its long range goals and advancing the K-State 2025 Plans. See below for the relocation Schedule Overview.
We want to extend our deepest congratulations to Larry McGee on his retirement from Facilities as our Director of Administration and Finance. A reception was held in Larry’s honor on Friday, May 27th and several friends and co-workers stopped by to offer their support and appreciation.
Larry retired as the first civilian director of the Directorate of Public Works at Fort Riley in June 2011 after a 30+ year career with the government. He accepted the position within K-States Facilities in Spring 2012. He was known for being extremely knowledgeable, a gifted people-person, and just a tad ornery. We will miss Larry immensely but wish him and his wife, Beverly, all the best as they enter this next chapter in their lives!
Congratulations to Cindy McNulty on her promotion to Human Resource Professional I. Cindy’s new responsibilities include processing new employees and supervising our payroll department. Congrats Cindy!

What is a Space Survey?The annual Space Survey is administered by the Office of Space Management for the purpose of updating and maintaining the University’s Space Database. Each College or department will be asked to review their current space inventory to verify room functions, floor plan accuracy, and department space allocations. It is the responsibility of each Dean, Department head, or Administrative unit leader to ensure all their units provide the requested information.
What is the difference between a Space Request and a Room Request? A Space Request involves requesting a change to University space allocation. It is submitted when a current department or college determines that additional space to their current allotment is required. A Room Request is needed for reserving an available campus room or facility such as a general use classroom or All Faiths Chapel. More information about Room Requests can be found on the Division of Facilities website:
