Developing a green building requires precise and effective preliminary planning in which it is clearly caused by the challenges and uncertainty measures that are faced by the investors. The barriers have challenged the process of making decisions by the stakeholders to proceed for a green building development. This paper aims to determine the green building investment barriers that hinder the penetration of this development into the market in institutional campuses in Malaysia. The barriers of green building investment were identified through a questionnaire survey. Higher Learning Institution (HLI) is the scope of the study to green building investment barriers and the university key leaders are the respondents. A statistical analysis was employed with descriptive analysis and correlational analysis to determine the level of challenges corresponding to the criterias that influence in decision making for green building investment and to identify the relationship between those main barriers with the main corresponding crieteria such as government, finance, stakeholders, compliance, technical knowledge, tools and methods. It has been found that the challenges of technical barriers including stakeholders, compliance, knowledge and tools influence significantly decision making process of green building development in institutional campuses.
