Public spaces of the city, where the social relations of the individuals of society take place intensively, have an important role in urban development. In addition to the cultural, economic and technological conditions in constant change and development, the understanding, necessity and usage of public space, are also affected. Along with these changing conditions, new requirements and problems arise such as the inclusivity of these spaces.

Augmenting the quality of spaces by enhancing the inclusivity and hence the quality of university campuses as a public space and spreading this philosophy throughout the whole society in professional life by ensuring the awareness is settled on university students as the main campus users who will provide the development of society, is an approach that will sustain the development of societies&cities.

The aim of this study is to review the literature in a wide range about conceptual of inclusive design in university campuses. In the meantime identifying the problems faced by users in university campuses, exploring the approaches and examples that will enable all users to access campus spaces and services will be handled. In addition, to use the approaches and to develope solutions to the problems will be encountered. In this study literature review based on inclusive design concepts and university design concepts will be done.
