Abstract

The paper summarizes the research experiences of the author, related to the pilot quality assessment studies of university buildings and campuses in Poland. The studies are linked by the method Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE). The scope of the quality analyses conducted by the author in University of Silesia in Katowice was the general efficiency assessed from the point of view of organizational and behavioral needs of users. The main research tools of the pilot quality assessment studies carried out by the author was focused on the selected buildings and university campus space. The discussed University of Silesia is currently undergoing changes in its campus. In the beginning of the 21st until nowadays some important buildings of University were erected and opened up. The University authorities are planning new facilities and extension of the campus site. The author’s analyses were used for pre-design studies. The analyses gave grounds for students’ conceptual designs concerning further growth of the University.
