Abstract [en]

The role of higher education institutions (HEIs) in promoting and supporting sustainabil- ity has outstretched over the past decades as a result of various declarations and commit- ments related to the need for sustainability in HEI. As a consequence, HEIs tried to achieve campus sustainability by integrating sustainability concept into their projects, partnerships, assessments, programs, curricula, and research. Accordingly, achieving campus sustainability is not feasible without the involvement of students as the biggest stakeholders of HEI, who have a substantial impact on sustainability by contributing to and supporting campus sustainability. This research aims to compare and analyse the at- titudes of students towards campus sustainability in relation to the influence of the uni- versity. The research was conducted at three universities in Sweden which have different environmental management system certification status, i.e., Jönköping University (JU), Chalmers University of Technology (Chalmers), and University of Gothenburg (GU). The result shows that there is a statistically significant difference in those three universi- ties in general. In detail, only ten out of twenty-two indicators of campus sustainability are different. Further analysis reports that students at GU have the highest attitudes, stu- dents at JU have the lowest ones, while Chalmers is positioned in between them. Analysis and discussion are provided to identify the reasons behind the differences and similarities.
