Abstract

Campus universities are completely self-contained: you can eat, drink, sleep, learn, go to the doctors, shop, get your haircut and party all in one place. Campus living can engender a close knit community. Some campuses are practically ‘mini towns’ in themselves, feeling very secure and student-oriented. Campus universities have formal and informal places. Formal places are of immense importance for disciplined and controlled delivery of knowledge. Informal places are of great importance in universities where the gained knowledge is shared, doubts are cleared and mind is relaxed. Some of the informal places are liked by students and staff and are remembered throughout life as part of good memories. The research is aimed to understand why some informal places are considered better than other informal places in a university campus? What are their physical characteristics? The study is divided in four parts. First part is to list the informal places within university. Second part deals with grading of the places as per the number of times the place is used and diversity of people present at that place. Result of this section ranks streets, plazas and food courts separately. Third part deals with the comparison of high ranked places with low ranked places to understand the reason behind the diversity and multi-use of those places. Findings of this research contradict the typical land use zoning segregations and advocates mixed use planning at even smaller block level.

Key Words

Campus University, Informal places, mixed use, accessible.
