Research is a morphological spatial study. Purpose was to find an accessibility efficiency of circulation network based on green university concept, Space Syntax theory and Geo-Informatics System (GIS) to analyze eco-friendly circulation networks of pedestrian way and bicycle way. It found that circulation networks are linear and curve linear patterns. An Intanin road is the main road that has the highest accessibility efficiency of global integration value ([HH]), local integration value ([HH] R3) and connectivity integration value measured 2.8330, 4.0373 and 28, respectively. The correlation of connectivity and [HH], connectivity and [HH] R3 are quite low. These values show that people have difficulty in understanding and remembering the route of circulation networks. However, the circulation network has the advantage of having very high correlation of [HH] R3 and [HH] measured 0.8716 which mean that people have great alternatives of route choice in circulation network. Otherwise, it found that an accessibility efficiency of circulation network and existing pedestrian routes of user have not related with an existing university pedestrian network. Results from, characteristic of university pedestrian network are fragment and cannot linkage.
