In this paper we focus on virtual campuses, i.e. virtual worlds representing real educational institutions that are based on the metaphor of a university and provide users with different learning tools. More specifically, we focus on the idea of integrating a virtual campus into the context of a virtual city where students live and work to extend its possibilities for supporting learning and socializing. In this paper we describe an empirical case study that was performed to test and develop our initial ideas. We present a set of guidelines for designing a virtual campus in the city context, based on the results of the study.
