Floor 1003 was wondering why it's on a skyscraper, but since got replaced with Floor 1003.

Except in industrially reorganized principals of equatorially omniscient dynamos, the repudiated fortitude of inquisitive and numerologically applicative seismology contained within Floor 1004 can in retroactively incoordinable junctions allocate requisite parallelogrammatic ligatures to superpositionally figurative but neither elastically reflexive nor teleologically inexact portrayals of hypercapitalist inflection, but except in reconsumptive paradigms detracting from inconsequential attitudes for adjustment from and into realigned analysis of the imperial domestication of the noncompetitive instinctual regulation, can detect no implicative functionalities' extractionist regards from the successively more magnanimous infinities ejecting into eternally retributive contrast.

Some say, that the hangar on this floor is actually the studio of a motoring show. And that someone on this floor knows what floor 1004 actually is. All we know is: it's called FLOOR 1006.

Floor 1007 contains the administrative offices for the Lowermost University of the Xkcd [sic] Skyscraper. ("Study at LUXS, achieve Success.")

The rest of the University is located on other, higher floors. (In some cases much higher. Some students have over an hour's elevator ride between their dorms and their classrooms.)

Floor 1008 contains one of the student accomodation blocks. The only access is via a special elevator that travels just from/to Floor 1007, geared so slowly that it takes more than an hour to traverse the gap. It smells.

Floor 1009 contains the main dining hall for LUXS students, some lab space for the LUXS Department of Biology, a supply room for the LUXS Department of Epidemiology, and several demo arenas used by the LUXS School of Medicine. Large fans ensure that the dining hall is kept at negative temperature and pressure, to avoid any risk of contaminating the rest of the floor.

Floor 1011 is a breeding facility for red squirrels. This basically means it's a native Scottish forest plus a few feeders that are replenished twice daily. The visitor centre is a fine-mesh cage around the elevators and stairwell doors, with four picnic tables. Due to its proximity to student accomodation, absolutely no privacy is available and multiple cleaning bots are on patrol.

Floor 1013 claims to be a luxury resort. In reality, it is a secret biology lab where LUXS students have been genetically engineering a yellow-skinned mythical creature capable of beating any other known creature in a footrace. They refer to their creature as Lowermost University's Xanthous Unbeatable Racing Yeti, codename LUXURY.

Floor 1016:

This floor is empty aside from a pedestal with a book sat upon it.

Written inside the book is the science behind the skyscraper being physically possible and the reason WHY it exists.

Unfortunately, anybody who leaves the elevator or stairwell and steps foot onto the floor gets instantaneously vaporised.

Floor 1019 is an Ames room, that actually changes the size of objects as they move from one corner to the other. It is therefore advised to leave it through the same door you came in.

The only thing that floor 1021 has is a perpetual motion machine. The room is seperated in half. The south half has hamsters running inside tunnels or on wheels, that generate energy in order for some hammers to hit some dominoes at the other half. Then these dominoes are actually a small part of a domino computer that displays images and videos to encourage the hamsters to continue doing their job.

Floor 1024 contains a hydroponic coffee plantation, converting Floor 1022's productivity into beans that Floor 1023 can process into gourmet coffee.

Considered collectively, Floors 1022 thru 1024 represent another perpetual motion machine.

Floor 1028 contains a group of university students placed there to disrupt the perpetual motion machine on floors 1022 through 1024 by constantly stealing coffee and productivity. They also occasionally steal civets, because they're cute.

Floor 1031 is an Ames room, that actually changes its size as you walk around in it. This causes all floors above it to shift slightly every time it changes size.

Floor 1037 contains a detailed simulation of the most hated high school classroom of whoever is currently inside it. To move on to the next floor, they must get 100% on the pop quiz, which is reset when you fail and is different every time. Only one person may access this floor at a time. There is a long line of people waiting to go to this floor from Floor 1036, but there is a very short line leading to it from the next floor. Nobody really likes to think about why.

Floor 1038 is another floor owned by the Lowermost University of the Xkcd [sic] Skyscraper. It consists mainly of laboratories for the Departments of Pedagogy, Penology, and Proctology. It is difficult to tell which are which.
