This chapter examines sustainable urban campuses and their impact on their students and local communities. It also considers elements of green infrastructure, learning, and community through the lens of urban environmental education trends, namely: City as Classroom, Problem Solving, and Environmental Stewardship. After providing an overview of aspects of sustainable university campuses, the chapter discusses the ways that such campuses address urban sustainability related to infrastructure, teaching and learning, as well as connections to the community. It shows that the built environment and lifestyles are important for urban campuses, given their location in areas of highly concentrated buildings and dense human population. It argues that environmental education in cities can benefit from harnessing the power that lies within a university campus's academic, infrastructural, and community-related resources.

Keywords:   green infrastructure, learning, community, urban environmental education, City as Classroom, Problem Solving, Environmental Stewardship, sustainable university campuses, urban sustainability, teaching
