A sustainable education building prepares young people for a sustainable life during education with its day-to-day practices. Sustainable education buildings that add value to the students and the environment provide success in students’ exam results, increase in their attendance, decrease in operating costs, increase in educator performance and satisfaction, increase in building life, reduction in environmental impacts and change in habits. Therefore, a sustainable educational buildings should be planned, which shows students and society the effects of people on world, and encourages students to take part in a more sustainable way of life. In this context, the current situation was evaluated through in situ measurements and sound transmission loss value affecting the acoustic comfort conditions were calculated and evaluated for the acoustic comfort conditions of the architectural design studio and building elements between classroom and corridor at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture.
