The university campus – for centuries an important urban building block and also in our future cities of tomorrow: it is impossible to imagine life without it. But what does modern campus planning look like in a re-mixing city of tomorrow and what concepts are being followed to integrate the university campus in the 21st century and to adapt it to digitalization and networking and develop it further? What concepts can be derived from networks, such as strategic alliances like the IDEA League, an association of five leading technical universities in Europe? How do these universities help to shape our European cities, what urban development ideas do they follow and how can they serve as a motor for urban development? Based on the IDEA-League partners: Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), ETH Zurich (Switzerland), RWTH Aachen University (Germany), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) and the University Politecnico di Milano (Italy), these research questions will be examined and analysed in detail with the aim of developing a design guideline for campus development. Based on current plannings, such as the campus redesign in Milan by Renzo Piano, the Science City at the ETH Zurich and the RWTH Aachen extensions Campus Melaten and Campus West, first results of the analysis are presented below. Important aspects that will also form the first cornerstones of the design handbook are the “24-student campus”, “outdoor space” and the “recreational area”.
