Mixed Occupancy – Accessory Use

Section 508.2

Post grade 12 educational occupancies are typically classified as "B" occupancies and usually incorporate mixed occupancies that are often considered accessory – full service kitchens and cafeterias (A-2), assembly areas (A), and dormitories (R-2) occupancies. Even though these spaces are ancillary to and a functional portion of the original larger occupancy they must be separated when they exceed the 10% rule.
