The relationship between land use and transportation is incontestable. Because land use conditions affect transport activity and transport planning effect on land use development. So, it is important to understand the interaction between them, in order to integrate planning. Different factors of land use such as density affect how people travel in a community. Also, these factors effect on traffic growth. So, understanding about the effect of land use on transportation and traffic is necessary to achieve transport planning objectives. In order to know about this effect, educational land use such as university campus is a good sample, because it can be defined as a small city and there is a strong connection between transportation and land use in campuses. Also, College campuses play an important role to create traffic issues such as congestion. Because they commonly have their own communities, typical daily activities such as working, studing and business. So, they attract a large number of people to universities every day. The purpose of this research is evaluation the effect of new constructed building, belong to Faculty of Built Environment on traffic issues such as congestion and lack of parking space. I report the result of survey based on data acquired from questionnaires, interviews and collected secondary data from UTM documents. My finding is new development attract new students and staff, so, increasing the number of these persons is a certain fact. Population growth leads to increase in the number of vehicles and this is a main factor to create congestion in future. Also, this mentioned building can effect on the required parking space. So, students will face with the lack of enough parking space.
