The desire to live in comfortable, relaxed and aesthetic environments is among the essential needs of people. The environment we live in becomes less natural each day, as a result of increased urbanization, and life in urban areas keep going under dense technical pressure. Outdoor spaces in university campuses are as important as educational structures and other enclosed spaces and, in addition to accommodating various outdoor spaces, university campuses serve the urban community along with students, academic and administrative staff as public spaces at the larger scale. For this reason, in order to meet the academic, social, artistic, cultural and sportive needs of users, campus sites should be tackled under the framework of physical planning and design principles. The University of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart has a total of 15 campuses located both in the city and in the several town centers. In these sites there are landscape design and implementation projects being carried out to improve outdoor spaces. In this study, examples of landscape design and implementation projects carried out for the improvement of outdoor spaces in the main Terzioğlu Campus and in Ezine Vocational School are provided.
