Campus

Campus is the Latin word for a field or open space. English gets the words "camp" and "campus" from this origin.

The 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.

Sometimes company offices are called campus as well, e.g. the Microsoft Campus[?] in Redmond, Washington.
