Michigan Technological University Space Management

University space management is a group effort by Financial Services and Operations, Institutional Analysis, Telcom, Facilities Management, Vice President for Research, and the University Space committee. Space management would not be possible without the prodigious help from the administrative and academic departments.  Through their space coordinators, the departments provide necessary data for institutional internal and external reporting.

The University Space Committee utilizes the data in ASPIRE to maximize space utilization in providing quality service to our students, faculty, and staff.

The Vice President for Research Office utilizes the data in ASPIRE as an integral part of the process of assigning institutional space into functional categories based on federal regulations and space use (a federal reporting requirement for research universities).

Access to the ASPIRE Application

Space coordinators are automatically given access. However, other new users will need to obtain authorization to access ASPIRE. Please contact aspirehelp-l@mtu.edu to request access and visit the ASPIRE Google Site.
