Accomplishing the goals of an eco-university, Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT), a suburban university in Thailand was initiated to practice an active role using the green university policy since 2016. There are two campus sites, which consist of Klong Hok Campus and Rangsit Center that located at Pathum Thani Province, Thailand. This paper was aimed to introduce the development of RMUTT to be a green campus and evaluate their results related to environment and sustainability by using UI GreenMetric ranking system during in 2017 - 2018. Six main criteria (i.e. setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation and education and research) were probably evaluated by an effective procedure, which referred to the questionable performance on campus in each year. In 2017, it was the first time to join this ranking that produced the total based-score (about 4,095 of 10,000 maximum scores) of ranking in both national and international outputs, respectively. Various efforts of implementation at RMUTT were also detailed, such as the preparation of green and smart buildings, the application of light-emitting diode (LED) tubes and smart meters for monitoring the electrical usage on campus. Many projects have been performed for saving energy, waste-water recycling, promotion of green education and research to increase environmental awareness and sustainability. Until the year 2018, such an effort was better resulted, when compared to the last year, depending on the total based-score (about 4,825 of 10,000 maximum scores).
