Abstract

The learning environment needs attention as this space is closely related to students' well-being and learning performance. The ideal learning environment is always changing as innovations in technologies, teaching strategies, and design philosophies require continuous measurement and reassessment. This paper focused on the assessment of the physical learning environment that influences students' satisfaction level at Taylor's University. The result revealed that students’ satisfaction levels highly rely on spatial features (room layout and furniture) and ambient features (temperature and acoustics) of the classrooms. The findings and conclusion give an insight concept of the ideal learning spaces of the 21st-century.
