Currently, many universities are equipping information facilities, the informatization construction on which the basis of Internet and the information service in the campus begins. The smart campus is an advanced stage in the construction of campus informatization, which can make the daily life in a campus more convenient. This paper analyzes the current construction of campus informatization, proposes an intelligent campus space model, and discusses key technologies based on the idea of object-oriented technique and service encapsulation. This model can support most campus activities, such as access control, e-commerce, and e-services.

Smart Campus and Intelligent Building

The concept of intelligent campus is expanded from the basic meaning of intelligent building. It has no standard definition and specification currently. Intelligent campus construction is still at the exploratory stage. The so-called intelligent building is a kind of reasonable investment building which can provide convenient, efficient, safe and comfortable working environment. It is in accordance with the systems engineering concept, and optimize the combination of four basic elements (i.e., system integration): the structure of the building (construction and environmental structure), the system (intelligent systems), services (households, user demand for services) and management (property operation and management) (Johnny & Heng, 2006; Tian, Kang, & Dong, 2010). From a manager's point of view, the intelligent building should have a set of control, management, operation and maintenance of communication facilities; from the user's point of view, the intelligent building should help to improve the work efficiency, to stimulate creative learning, working and living environment (Wang, Xu, Cao, & Zhang, 2007; Gao & Dou, 2010). Building is the campus’s entity constituted. So this study can learn from the related concept of intelligent building. However, it should to be emphasized that the smart campus is a larger system, system planning and designing methodology is needed to study and solve.
