The needs of building new electricity transmission lines grow up due to rapid pace of population and energy usage. Since it is considered certain criteria such as engineering requirements, built environment and natural environment for the evaluation of alternatives to select the best route for the new transmission line, the problem is multi-criteria decision making problem (MCDM). In this study, the Analytic Network Process (ANP) which is an efficient technique in the solution of the MCDM problems was used. In line with this aim, it was presented an evaluation of alternative routes for the application of a new electricity transmission line passing through the campus area of the Selcuk University. It was determined the macro corridors based on ANP and then the best route was picked up from alternatives according to their scores figured out by using Factor Weighting Method (FWM).
