Abstract

The condition of pedestrian ways on campuses in Indonesia has become a serious problem because of the gap between regulations on pedestrian ways and reality. This condition affects students’ satisfaction as they move around. This research attempts to develop an evaluation model and test it on the sidewalks of the University of Lampung campus. The method used in this study is a qualitative-quantitative method (mix methods), collecting data through literature questionnaires and observations. For data analysis, quantitative content analysis and statistical analysis were used to determine the correlation between predominant variables and students’ overall satisfaction. This study found five dimensions of an evaluation model introduced by quassessment: quality, design, safety, sensory, amenities. It also found that the dominant factors that cause student dissatisfaction are concerns with durability of path material, aesthetics, and continuity of path without significant elevation differences. The dominant factors that potentially bring more satisfaction to students are durability of path material, aesthetics, and availability of shelter. On the other hand, observation, absence of obstruction, continuity of path without significant elevation differences, and durability of path material are the most common factors. Also, it has been found that overall satisfaction has a correlation with five dominant factors, which are durability of path material factor (0.62), absence of obstruction (0.60), continuity of path without significant elevation differences (0.69), aesthetics (0.59), and availability of shelter (0.53).
