NVC Office Policies

Department directors are the originators of requests for office space and office renovations at the Northern Virginia Center (NVC). Directors should request both by submitting a completed Space Request form to the office of the Center Director,  VT/NVC, for consideration by the NVC Space Committee. 

The building was new in 1997. The office furnishings were built-to-suit and original furnishings need to be maintained by the departments using the office space.

(Northern Virginia Center Policy)
Each office in the Northern Virginia (NVC) is furnished with a combination of fixed and movable desks, chairs, bookshelves, storage units and file cabinets, appropriate for use by faculty, staff and grad students. These furnishings are the property of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and cannot be removed or surplused without university permission (via NVC Administration). In addition, if furnishings are removed from offices, the academic department who requested their removal must bear either:

  • the cost of de-installation, storage and re-installation of the original furnishings, or
  • the cost of refurnishing the office to acceptable standards according to the space's original usage, or
  • the responsibility to seek approval from NVC Administration to leave furnishings as is.

The Northern Virginia Center does not have - and cannot provide - storage for any furnishings removed from offices or classrooms. Although NVC Administration will make an effort to incorporate the furnishings elsewhere in the building, we cannot guarantee that this will be possible.

Building and classroom temperatures are computer-controlled and programmed at a room setting, or set point (usually 73 degrees). The system is programmed to make small adjustments to compensate for active room usage in a set area. A disadvantage of the system is that during fall and spring (seasonal changes) the outside temperatures can change rapidly affecting room temperatures and the system. HVAC requests should be sent to facilities to be registered and forwarded for attention by the property engineer.

The Facilities office has a few fans for loan in the event that temporary issues with HVAC arise in offices.  They can also relocate classes to other rooms if needed.

Department offices are independent and each handle their own office supply orders, copier access codes, mailing accounts codes , etc.
