The existing urban campus is very much affected by rapid urbanization and the globalized knowledge economy. It must adapt its development to these challenges to ensure its continuous significance in the context. This study evaluates the new urban spaces of the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Kuala Lumpur (UTM-KL), an urban campus that had evolved since the 1950s. Using a qualitative method for a single case study, a morphological study was done based on visual observation, and document review. The finding reveals that the new development applied a different planning approach to the original campus planning, affecting the urban spaces. It is recommended to design the new planning development concerning the existing context to maintain the spaces' value towards retaining the sense of belonging and attachment to the place.
