This entity records the NIA of teaching and research space that is classified as “specialist”. This space should also be recorded in Teaching not offices NIA and Research not offices NIA. Space is considered “specialist” where it is designed for a specialist purpose and which cannot easily be used for other non-specialist activities. It includes rooms or facilities with abnormal or exceptional equipment where such a feature inhibits the use of the room for other non-specialist activities, such as general teaching. We would expect this space to be aligned with space returned by providers as specialist in TRAC.
Types of space included in this category may include laboratories, specialist theatres and drama studios, catering facilities used as part of academic courses, dark rooms, recording studios etc.
Quality rules relating to this entity are displayed here.
|Change management notes||Guidance amended to clarify what areas are deemed to be “specialist”. Note also added to state that we would expect this space to be aligned with space returned by providers as specialist in TRAC.|
