      Siwalankerto environment is a giant laboratorium that can support an interesting learning process. Petra Christian University Campus is located in Siwalankerto area with its plural community in which most of the people are moslems. As a new comer in the neighbourhood, our campus must play an appropriate role in order to be accepted and supported by the Siwalankerto community.This circumstance has made the service learning method that is developed in our classroom become more spesific,which is building social partnership to the neighbourhood around our campus. Holding service learning method in architecture subjects is not easy. Sometimes service learning method needs to be modified. The class needs to be arranged in special condition, according to the time schedule of the class. In early 2012, our class wasrequested to redevelop an early childhood learning center for the poor community in Siwalankerto. It was provided by the local government. The condition of the building was unsuitable to be used by a large number of children who learn in that place. During the design process,our students learnt a lot of new things. It made the students learn about caring and respecting others, developing new skills of their psychomotor abilities, and developing their critical and creative thinking. This type of learning process could build social partnership with others and influence our students’ way of thinking. It broadened their vision of knowledge and mostly improved their soft skills. They reflected that they had learned new things besides major subject that has been taught. They also learned new experience that was taught by the marginal community. Students in other architecture subjects that do not implement Service Learning will not get these experiences.
