Universities are the engine of science in any country. Thus improvement of a university led the country to development. Location of the university is one of the factors which are effective on the quality of research and educational activities at the university. Crowded or polluted areas are not proper places for the universities. There are also the other criteria such as quality of transportation system which may affect the satisfaction of the people who deal with the university. GIS has powerful tools to spatially analyze the location and produce the outputs to be considered as the indexes of properness of a location for a specific activity. 

In Iran most of the major universities have been constructed in the capital: Tehran. Tehran is a crowded, polluted and large metropolis which contains various neighbourhoods with various conditions. This research aims to assess and compare the spatial conditions of six important universities in Tehran. To extract the effective factors more than 500 students were interviewed. The extracted factors were categorized into two main categories of spatial and environmental and then were divided into five subcategories, namely: greenness, air pollution, noise pollution, accessibility and compatibility of surrounded land-uses. Using GIS analyzes the quantitative values extracted from the maps, satellite images and statistical data. Then Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods were used to combine the factors. The results revealed that Amirkabir University of Technology achieves the highest score while Allameh Tabataba'i University is ranked below among the considered six universities.
