Abstract: This research simulated the engineering faculty complex of UGM using UMI Software, to assess how green is the campus complex. The methodology of this research was simulated by UMI software with 3 parameters. The size of the Floor Area Ratio is 0.26 with a total area of ± 183,534 m2. The highest amount of Operational Energy is 116 kWh/m2/year and the lowest amount is 75 kWh /m2/year. Those are still considered lower than 240 kWh/m2/year as a standard of energy usage. The mobility-value in the walkability aspect is 67, and 86 for Bikeability values. The results of the mobility-value are obtained and supported by questionnaire with a percentage of 62.60% which is considered as enough (60%). The results of the study show that the Engineering Faculty of UGM Campus is proved as a sustainable area. The results of this study can be used to improve the sustainability in UGM toward the green campus in the future. The Dean of engineering Faculty is suggested to maintain the efficiency of energy that is achieved today. Then, students are suggested to change their lifestyle by using bicycle and walking to improve mobility aspect.

Key words: sustainability, green campus, urban modelling interface
