UI GreenMetric is a guide for higher education institutions to raise awareness of sustainable development, sustainable research, building a green campus, and social influence. There are six assessment categories in UI GreenMetric. One of them is energy and climate change. The assessment point in energy and climate change is the implementation of smart buildings within the campus area. There is often pollution on campus. The campus still uses groundwater for daily sanitation; workshops' waste is discharged directly into the ground without any sewage treatment process; many private vehicles are in the campus area; and 30% of campus land has been used as vehicle parking lots. It is necessary to carry out a monitoring process to determine the concentration of CO2 in the air. For this reason, further study is needed on smart features that will be built to support UI GreenMetric concepts. It is expected to help monitor water, soil, and air environmental parameters. This smart would later be monitored remotely using the Internet of Things (IoT) method. The maximum result of air temperature is 32,3°C, the maximum level of CO2 is 526,8 ppm, the minimum humidity level is 47,2%RH, and the maximum level of PAR is 589,3 µ*mol/m2*s. The noise maximum level is 84 dB, and pH water maximum is 7,01. The density of students also caused an increase in some parameters. POLMED must concentrate on environmental sustainability. Therefore, we should pay for internal recycling water treatment, reducing the use of private vehicles, and expanding green open space.
