Abstract Many universities aim to collaborate on education, research, and knowledge valorization, making it crucial to create physical spaces that encourage interdisciplinary work. The purpose of this study is to examine the convergence majors offered at the university. It aims to identify which majors emphasize convergence education, to understand the layout and spatial characteristics of the campus, and to see how convergence-focused majors are distributed across the campus. Additionally, it explores the proximity and spatial arrangement of the key buildings related to these majors. A network analysis of convergence majors was performed using the NodeXL program. Once the convergence majors were defined, the spatial characteristics among them were explored with the Depthmap X program. Axial analysis focused on connectivity, integration, choice and mean depth in various building areas across the campus. The administration building, student lounge, and library were all centrally located on campus. Among key convergence majors such as the medical, engineering, and business schools, the business school tended to be at the campus's center, close to other major buildings. Given the campus layout, the College of Business Administration building is a flexible and collaborative space, conveniently located near central areas and other important buildings.
