    Learning environment had indirect impacts on student achievement, creating the positive attitudes, higher studying motivation and undoubtedly better performance. The accessibility aspect of the learning place was crucial for educational facility such as University Library in the higher education. On the other hand, because of the old building�s design, many users found accessibility barrier in Library @ Petra University�s facilities. The accessibility issue for all users was found in FGD, which include persons with disabilities, senior persons, pregnant women as well as children (USER � CENTERED principle). The Redesign of Library @ Petra was proposed based on inclusive design principles. The EQUITABLE BUT REASONABLE USE principle would be grantedby the provision of assistance corner for special users, internal lift, accessible pathways and rotating spaces, accessible meeting areas and accessible toilet. The SIMPLE and INTUITIVE USE was to be fulfilled with braille � visual signage and guiding path for the blind. The LOW PHYSICAL EFFORT was applied in the lift, accessible toilets and assistance to get books in certain inaccessible areas, computers for special users (blind users) were provided for reading, to access e � book and catalogue. The PREVENTION OF USAGE ERROR principle was proposed in the voids� 150-cm height railing and anti-slip flooring.
