Economic development in almost all countries causes harmful effects that future generations will feel. The solution to this issue is the application of sustainability in all aspects of life, including at universities. Students as future generations are stakeholders interested in implementing sustainable universities. This study aims to see the readiness of students to support the implementation of sustainable universities in Indonesia. The research method used is pre, and post-experiment using video media about climate change's negative impacts and causes. Data analysis of selected respondents purposively was carried out using content and descriptive analysis. The result is that students are quite ready to support the implementation of a sustainable university; even students provide several strategies to make the performance of a sustainable university successful.
