Green open spaces have many functions and positively impact urban communities, both psychologically and physically. Students spend most of their time in the campus area like gardens, but their perspectives are less involved in planning campus gardens as the user of the garden. The condition of the garden as one of the environmental factors depends on the behavior of garden users. On the other hand, the condition of the garden forms the behavior and perspectives of garden users. It is crucial to know users' needs to ensure the sustainability of users' behavior and gardens' condition. Based on these problems, this study aims to understand users' perceptions and problems on-site, create a conversation between stakeholders. Questionnaire results were obtained from 36 active garden users by using a purposive sampling method. The results were analyzed descriptively. The questions were divided into three sections regarding users' cognitive, environmental, and behavioral factors - the results actors, user perspectives, and user behavior that are interdependent and form one another. Universities need to start a conversation concerning users' needs in the campus garden to sustain its condition and a better campus community.
