Abstract Deterioration of space within local universities that developed in the 1980s has led to demands for spatial rearrangement and facility improvements. In accordance with the decreasing number of school-age population, reduction in student admission is expected, and the projected occupied space per head needs downsizing. Based on a spatial characteristics analysis of the Wonkwang Academy campus by period and through a survey conducted on university members, a sustainable master plan for improvement in a school’s physical space was established. The strategic points of this plan involve a corporate-friendly campus, stimulation of specialty fields related to a local university, and open-typed campus to coexist with a region were applied to the “2046 Sustainable Master Plan.” The local government and Wonkwang Academy will team up to construct an open space for local residents and create places for culture, amusement, and exercise. This has the potential to attract a floating population inside of campus and revitalize its unused space. In addition, it newly establishes zones for history, business, sports, and events for citizens that are relevant to the times while maintaining the existing zone. Each zone is connected to trails to have a cyclic structure, evolving into a park for locals and university members. Based on the needs of the times, it builds an independent developmental strategy for local universities and presents a sample master plan.
