Global environmental change, as IPPC reported, its indication with air temperature getting a rise every year within 0.74 °C since the beginning of the 20th century. The consequence of that condition, every human will live with global environmental change. Urban Heat Signature is temperature behavior of land cover types as a representation of an urban environment. University Campus, as part of an urban environment, had an Urban Heat Signature. The research objective assessments of Urban Heat Signature impact on urban universities campus. Study area located in urban at University of Malaya (UM) and the University of Indonesia (UI). This research used spatial-temporal analysis to analysis Urban Heat Signature effect on a university campus with employed image satellite generated land surface temperature, ground trough collected air surface temperature and an online survey of human perception. This result saw that both UM and UI campuses found maximum Urban Heat Signature between 30-33.0°C and the UHS effect on air temperature with max >33.0°C then impact on human perception is very hot with uncomfortable sensation will getting a headache and lethargic then decreasing capacity and achievement of work or study at two urban universities. This result concluded that UHS impact on the university campus with air temperature more than 33.0°C and heat intensity would impact on human health and work activity, especially on study achievement. This result is significant to an understanding of UHS impact on human well-being in university campus as urban an environment.
