Reconfiguration of Floor Plans and Occupancy Limits

The Graduate Center’s plan defines occupancy limits for each phase and the Office of Facilities Services and Campus Planning has revised floor plans and reconfigured spaces throughout the building so that individuals that are at least six feet apart in all directions. The reconfiguration of space follows CUNY’s Guidelines for Safe Campus Reopening.

Examples of spaces that have been reconfigured and the new occupancy limits are noted in the chart below. These spaces would not be available until The Graduate Center enters either phase 3 or phase 4 of the reactivation plan.
