Space Management Analysis

This ongoing process supports the collection of employee work arrangements and location information to manage space efficiently. It streamlines collection of employee location information for new employees, gives employees a way to maintain this information using a new form that includes floor plans and allows supervisors, space mangers and Human Resources contacts to review and validate this data.


UC San Diego has more than 40,000 employees across campus and the health system and is required to collect employee information to meet these compliance and space management requirements:

  1. AB-119: Under California Assembly Bill 119, the university has a legal obligation to provide unions with the work location information for employees in their respective unions. Also, UCOP expanded the request for work location to non-represented employees.
  2. Space Management: Use employee location information to make space management decisions at the department, vice chancellor,and chancellor levels.

Employee Location Types

Space Managers assign a Primary Location or Check-in Location for all non-remote, active employees working at least one day per week (or equivalent 20%) on campus. Exclude casual/restricted (non-academic student employees). Academic student employees are included.
  • Primary Location: All people in Tririga are allowed only one Primary Location, usually an office workpoint assigned by the person's primary or “home” department (but can be a non-office or non-workpoint space if no office is assigned). The Primary Location people count against occupancy calculations when it is a workpoint. DO NOT use Primary Location to indicate a PI/Cluster presence.
  • Secondary Location: All people in Tririga may have any number of Secondary Locations. They are used for subsequent designated locations after the Primary Work Location is identified. These additional seat assignments are usually based on a situational use such as a secondary appointment or project. The Secondary Location people count against occupancy calculations when it is a workpoint. DO NOT use Secondary Location to indicate PI/Cluster presence.
  • Occupancy: Capacity and Total Shared Capacity must be more then 1 for workpoints (offices) and are used to calculate occupancy and vacancy when the space is a workpoint.
  • Check-In Location: For people who do not perform a significant concentration of work in a designated building space due to work performed in the field or constantly changing on-demand work at a variety of locations. The check-in location is where a supervisor or other contact could enable someone to get in touch with the person or where staff report but not where they perform most of their work. Check-in location people are excluded from occupancy calculations.
  • A space may have staff in the Primary, Secondary and Check-in locations at the same time.
  • Criteria for employees to be entered into Tririga: ALL employees, volunteers and affiliates in UC Path must enter their work arrangements. Also add work location if working on campus (excluding 100% remote).
