Abstract

In recent years, there has been an increasing emphasis on urban planning, which helps cities to adapt to new challenges. Sustainability of cities is one of the basic requirements for local and regional planning, especially from an environmental point of view. One of the many challenges for cities is the safety of citizens and reducing crime in cities. It is important to realize that the environment and urban development can have an impact on the safety of citizens and the development of crime in cities. One of the best-known con-cepts that uses space modification to reduce crime is the concept of CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental design). It is based on the simple idea that crime is the result of opportunity, and by changing the physical en-vironment, a reduced incidence of crime can be achieved. The article will describe the theoretical framework of the CPTED concept, the characteristics of its principles and the elements it contains. The aim of the article is to as-sess the general principles of crime prevention using environmental design, and their elements, which are applied on the campus of the University of Žilina in Žilina. Subsequently, possible shortcomings of the concept for the selected case study will be evaluated and new solutions will be proposed. The results of the article will be intended primarily for designers and archi-tects who are responsible for maintaining a safe and friendly environment on the university campus.
