Abstract: In recent years, the rise of global warming worldwide poses a cause of concern that needs to be addressed. Due to the activities present within campuses, universities have both direct and indirect impacts on the environment that require some attention. Measures on environmental sustainability is one way to go about dealing with such issues and it places emphasis on developing strategies that will lead to increased sustainability in the long run. A sustainable campus should actively engage the university community to address the environmental challenges faced now and in the future. This dissertation focuses on a local university, National University of Singapore (NUS), to investigate the problems faced on campus and come up with strategies to move NUS towards a more sustainable future. The study will be conducted through qualitative and quantitative research processes such as literature review, survey questionnaires, interview and case study. After gaining an understanding on the NUS community and campus through the survey questionnaires and interview, this dissertation discusses and explores possible recommendations for NUS as a sustainable campus. Based on the survey findings, teaching staff in NUS have a greater awareness on campus sustainability than students. Also, Energy Management was found to be the most important aspect of campus sustainability and Greenery was found to be the most sustainable in NUS. Recommendations will be proposed based on three main strategies, which are in accordance to the sustainable campus principles under ISCN – buildings and their sustainability impacts, campus wide planning and target settings, and education outreach to the community.
