Methods – The workplace experiences of the mobile knowledge workers were collected in two phases in early summer 2020 executing first a survey followed by semi-structured interviews (N=23). The qualitative content analysis was conducted.
Results – The findings indicated mostly intra-organisational mobility due to 1. interaction within the academic community, 2. (missing) provision of the workspaces, and 3. issues concerning control over time and environment. Three interaction patterns were identified: between, 1. the team, 2. the university organisation units 3. university organisation and external actors. Each level consists of direct (planned) and indirect (co-presence) interaction. These set diverse requirements for campus development.
Originality – Extensive amount of research exists on multi-locational mobile knowledge workers in e.g., global context and corporations. However, less literature seems to be on mobility within a city or in academic work context.
Practical implications – The results benefit briefing and designing of campus environments for interaction and collaboration at different levels.
