The tallest building is the principal or rectory, we can also see the Stadium for about 35,000 people, and the library the right building




These are the university buses routes inside




This is the Stadium, it is also called the Olympic Stadium because it was used to host the Olympoic games of 1968 also with Azteca Stadium


The team of the University is called Pumas and this is the Logo

Uppsala University - Sweden

Uppsala University was founded in 1477 and is the oldest university in Scandinavia. It has about 22,000 students.

The University main building (built in 1887):

Gustavianum, the former University main building, now a museum:

Gustavianum, Uppsala by nilslennart, on Flickr
Gustavianum was given it's current form in 1622, but the core structure of the building is a medieval archbishops palace.
The cupola on the roof is an anatomical theater, "Theatrum Anatomicum", built in 1662 and the second oldest surviving example of such a theater in the world.

Carolina Rediviva - the university main library:

The library was built between 1819-1841, and is today one of 12 university library buildings, together holding more than 5 million books.

Uppsala University Botanical Garden:

botaniska by stefanjhn69, on Flickr
The Garden was originally the formal garden to Uppsala castle, but king Gustav III donated the land to the University in 1787, the same year the foundations of the conservatory seen in the picture were laid.
The castle garden was laid out in 1665, and the current baroque plan was created in 1744.

Universiteit Leiden, The Netherlands, oldest university in the country (1575)

image hosted on flickr

Academiegebouw by zamito44, on Flickr
Main building, a former convent confiscated to house the fledgling university, presently mainly used for ceremonial purposes and paid seminars to professionals etc.

Same building, different angle

Academiegebouw by m-gem, on Flickr

This building houses the infamous "zweetkamertje". Back in the day, this is where students (we're talking 18th century here) would wait while awaiting judgment from the university examinators. Later on, it became customary to place one's autograph on the walls - which are almost black with pencil scribblings by now - upon graduation, as one can see here:

Zweetkamer #2 by Alena, on Flickr

(famous autographs, for instance, Churchill's and those of royal family members, are covered in plexiglass)

Walking on, we pass under the "Doelenpoort":

A stone's throw to the west one finds the 'Arsenaal' building, a former military storeroom now housing the East Asian Studies department:

The building's patio has been covered since with a glass roof, making it a pleasant area for lunch and conversation:

More University of Leiden:

Hugo de Grootstraat by Michiel2005, on Flickr

These buildings (constructed around 1900) constituted the university's chemistry department (organic on the left, anorganic on the right, or the other way around) just outside the city's moat. Later, they would house the law school until it moved to the Kamerlingh Onnes building. The building on the left was turned into luxury appartments and the other one houses international students.

Kamerlingh Onnes building, former physics building (named after the nobel laureate) now housing the law school after extensive renovations in 2005:

One of the few "authentic" lecture rooms remaining at Leiden University:

Library Kamerlingh Onnes Leiden by trullez, on Flickr

That's it for now! Do note that the university also has a host of ugly 1970's buildings which I shall not post.
