Abstract The square of Chungbuk National University is a centered public space where various activities of users are held. Since the Corona19 epidemic, the user’s behavior of campus space has changed due to the quarantine policy. Through a comparison of behaviors before and after the Corona19, we are going to confirm the role of the square, the core external space, and expand the concept of the square. The user's behavior before and after the Corona19 in 2019 and 2020 was analyzed targeting the square between the new library and the student's union building newly established in 2017. Three weeks before and after the exam week, three times on weekdays, taking pictures of user behavior. Through this, we tried to understand the usage and the method of using the square. After the corona19, the interior space could not be used properly. Also, the usage of the Square as an external space has decreased. However, it could be seen that the square was used in various ways and the importance of the square was increased. The importance of its role as a public external space should be emphasized, and it should be a space that can contain various behaviors.
