This paper presents lifestyle in a multipurpose Digital Campus facilitating for a better e-Learning environment as the core of the research. This elaborate Digital Campus is created in a 3D system with Virtual Collaborative Environment. Plainly, it is a campus created in the virtual world where users can learn and experience campus life of the university while collaborating with other participants involved. We propose all the available features that the Digital Campus can provide and discuss the points that have been proved to be advantageous for the users. Our goal is to create a dream university on the WEB so that anybody can participate anytime, anywhere, depending upon his/her needs, removing all the barriers and solving problems involved in the real university.
