Abstract Before and after the coronavirus epidemic, the introduction of a quarantine policy changed the usage of major facilities using the square. Through the analysis of the behavior of public facilities centered on universities before and after the coronavirus, the relationship between square and public facilities is identified. This study analyzes the importance of not only the function as a central space within the university, but also the connection between the inner and outer spaces. The student union and library, which are major public facilities located across the Chungbuk National University square, are analyzed before the corona epidemic in 2019 and 2020. Starting from the midterm exam in the 2nd semester, survey the user’s behavior of the square three times in the morning, noon, and evening during three weekdays for three weeks from October 14 to November 1, 2019 and October 12 to October 30, 2020. Analyze the amount of usage of facilities and understand the user’s behavior of public spaces. Even after the coronavirus epidemic, it was investigated that a large number of students use university public facilities through the square, indicating that these facilities are playing a pivotal role in the campus. The square should increase the utilization rate of public spaces and become a central space that contains various behaviors through linkage between university-centered facilities and external spaces. Thus, the university central facilities and the outer space should be recognized as a complex cultural space, so that the university facilities and square can function as the university central space and public space.
