The green space of students’ living area is an important part of Chinese university campus. It has a close relationship with students’ daily life, study and amusement. In recent years, as the campus has been being newly-built or rebuilt, green spaces in students’ living area have been greatly improved. However, a survey shows that many students are not satisfied with these green spaces. In order to find out problems existing in landscape design of these green spaces, this paper, from the perspective of environmental psychology, investigated and analyzed students’ behaviors and corresponding psychology in these green spaces by taking Chang’an campus of a university in Xi’an as a case. On this basis, this paper attempts to conclude experiences and lessons in designing green spaces of students’ living area, and hopes to provide some useful references for the design of campus landscape.
