Room and Building Labeling Protocol

Sample Room Numbering Protocol

A space management system requires that a unique room number be assigned to each and every space within a facility. This includes bathrooms, utility closets, corridors, and shaft spaces. These numbers do not necessarily have to be labeled in the field provided that an up-to-date set of floor plans exist which show the room numbers assigned to primary spaces.

This protocol (or series of protocols) has been established for the entire campus and all new construction. In the case of existing buildings, it is usually more advantageous to maintain existing numbers and "work the protocol around them" versus renumbering the whole building. The following examples reflect room-numbering protocols in place at UConn Health. All proposed room numbers must be verified with UConn Health prior to be submitted.

The building name codes and room numbering convention for rooms will be as follows:

Circulation Areas and Building Services Areas

All room-numbering protocols apply for Building Code and Level for these room types. Room Number is used to identify type of service and quantity of service on floor. Only these room types violate ‘zero fill’ in room numbering listed above. The designation for room type is generally after the level designation, followed by quantity on floor.
