The gross square footage reported represents the main campus and not the additional square footage of the laboratory farms which is approximately 104,180 for the Campus Lab Farm and 139,559 for the Mann Valley Lab Farm. Both farms include just a small amount of residential square footage also given homes on each farm, 3 total of about 2000 square feet each.

The "Floor area of residential space" square footage reported is the total square footage for the residence halls, which includes space (eg. lounges, study rooms, etc.) that is not defined as “residential space” as per the US Department of Education's Post-secondary Education Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual. The actual sf is smaller, but we do not have specific data for this.

"Other energy intensive space" square footage is for the campus greenhouse.
