Welcome to Real Estate and Space Administration

Purdue's Real Estate Office provides the University with services for the purchase, lease, sale or management of property, in addition to maintaining a real estate inventory. Occupancy planning and brokerage services for leasing and purchasing are provided in partnership with third-party entity Jones Lang LaSalle. Space Administration and Occupancy Planning initiatives include the acquisition of space inventory responsibilities, strategic administration of the University's space assets and managing departmental requests for a temporary or permanent office, research or instructional space.

Campus customers who request departmental space will work closely with staff in several areas of Administrative Operations, including Auxiliary Services and Physical Facilities, to identify viable options.

Real Estate, Space Administration and Occupancy Planning

Real Estate staff work closely with Physical Facilities and the Treasurer’s Office to meet customer needs quickly and efficiently. Additionally, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) provides the University with leasing and purchasing brokerage services.

Space Administration provides important space information and data to University leaders so they can make strategic, informed decisions regarding facility planning. Any cost savings resulting from these decisions may be spent on other priorities, including improving facilities or enhancing academic programs.

Purdue is also partnered with JLL to provide Occupancy Planning services, which includes the space inventory tool FM Systems.

Process Support

Once a lease request is approved Occupancy Planning, the Real Estate Office will connect customers to JLL real estate team. Customers will work directly with brokerage services staff from JLL to summarize space requirements, complete market surveys, tour potential sites, request proposals from potential sites and determine the best possible sites for Purdue University.
