In achieving towards sustainable campus of higher education institutions (HEIs), energy consumption behaviour assessment is one of the several issues that require attention by the facilities manager. Information on energy consumption behaviour is needed to determine potential energy savings. However, issues on the information of energy consumption behaviour such as 'direct' and 'indirect' data, pattern segregation, factors influence and modeling subsequently has inhibited the energy consumption behaviour assessment agenda. The purpose of this study is to assess energy consumption behaviour for student accommodations in Malaysian public universities. This study has two main objectives, first, to determine energy consumption patterns and analyse the factors that influence the pattern. Second, is to develop energy consumption behavioural models (ECBM) and assess the potential energy savings. The 'energy culture' framework consolidated with 'centrographic' approach and econometric analysis used to strengthen the development of ECBM. A self-administrated survey carried out involving 1,400 respondents in selected public HEIs. There are three types of energy use among students in public HEIs namely, 'high', 'low', and 'conserve'. The 'device', 'activities' and 'building regulation' are the influence factors on the pattern of energy use. The energy consumption behaviour model (ECBM) was developed at the final stage of the study. Through the model's application, there is a potential energy savings of 52 to 66 percent among the students. It is capable of assessing the energy consumption behaviour and potential energy savings.
