Campus is Latin word for "field" or "open space". English gets the words "camp" and "campus" from this origin.
Hence, a campus is the area in which a university and surrounding buildings are situated. Usually a campus includes libraries, lecture halls, student residential areas and park-like settings. It can also refer to the principal grounds of a college, university or school, between the buildings or within the main inclosure; as, the college campus
