General pre-planning was available only for some buildings of universities in the world. University of Mosul and its buildings are cumulative development university, therefore, many of its old buildings today witness big changes in various of its utilities, and the phenomenon of changing the entries' location of some of its educational buildings may considered as the most important of these changes especially these building are occupied by the same science departments, hence the research problem is defined, which is the fuzziness of the impact of changing the entries' location on the spatial configuration features for the educational buildings in the university of Mosul, due to the importance of the spatial configuration which reflects the human organizing and behaviour that created this configuration, the research aim was defined as trying to illustrate this impact, and some of educational buildings are chosen, which their entries are changed, then their features of spatial configurations are studied before and after change by using the space syntax methodology.
The research reached at the originated entries allowed to increase integration degree and decreasing the depth rate value for theeducational administrative and servant departments in their relation with exterior on the contrary of the particular part of the teaching staff rooms in the research buildings sample.
