Abstract: Over the recent years, climate change has been a serious concern across the globe With that, there is an urgent need for intervention to mitigate climate change and one of the ways the world can curb climate change is to reduce its emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) through lowering the energy consumption and production. In working towards environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, every sector has a role to play, including institutions like the universities and polytechnics. The increased in the number of institutions has caused them to bear a rising environmental load. Many well-known universities around the word have realised how serious the environmental load caused by universities is. Thus, active measures have been taken to reduce the consumption such as raising awareness about excessive consumption on campus and also, the need to have a more energy efficient facilities. The 3 buildings from the School of Design and Environment (SDE) were used as case studies. Their energy data were analysed and comparisons were made to identify its relationship with the factors that affect a building’s energy performance. Some of which are the Gross Floor Area (GFA), occupancy and use and function of a building. Results showed that there is no one strong factor that has a huge influenced on the energy performance of SDE buildings. All the factors that were analysed are interlinked. However, the limitation of this study is that the scope is too small to make any conclusion regarding the energy consumption pattern of other buildings belonging to other faculties.
