Abstract: College buildings have unique characteristics in contrast with school buildings; therefore, defining the realistic occupancy schedule in a prototype college building has significant research opportunities. In this study, actual operating schedules of each space type have been collected, generated based on the class reservation schedule. The results indicate that the use of a typical school building schedule in a college building impairs the granularity of information. The results with the updated occupancy are more realistic because the prototype model is developed by the actual data.
