Building Inventory


The Building Inventory List is a complete list of building names and numbers for existing and planned UMD and non-UMD facilities. Buildings can be sorted by building name or number.



Building Specifications



Gross Square Feet (GSF)


GSF is the sum of all areas on all floors of a building included within the outside faces of its exterior walls, including all vertical penetration areas, for circulation and shaft areas that connect to one floor. Gross area is computed by physically measuring or scaling measurements from the outside faces of exterior walls, disregarding cornices, pilaster, buttresses, etc., which extend beyond the wall faces. Exclude areas having less than a 3-foot clear ceiling height unless the criteria of a separate structure are met. GSF excludes open areas such as parking lots, playing fields, courts, and light wells, or portions of upper floors eliminated by rooms or lobbies that rise above single-floor height. Exception: Include top, unroofed floor of parking structures where parking is available.

Net Assignable Square Feet (NASF)


NASF is the sum of all areas on all floors of a building assigned to, or available for assignment to, an occupant or specific use. Assignable area is computed by physically measuring or scaling measurements from the inside faces of surfaces that form the boundaries of the designated areas. Exclude areas having less than a 3-foot clear ceiling height unless the criteria of a separate structure are met.


Totals include the major room use categories, classrooms, labs, offices, study facilities, special use, general use, support, health care, residential and unclassified spaces
