Most beautiful university campuses around the world

What are your favorite university campuses in your country or around the world, post pics here.

My top 3

University of Oxford







The oldest university in the english-speaking world, Oxford is not only one of the best school for higher educations, but it's school campus is also one of the finest in the world.

Peking University







Located on a former imperial garden for Qing Dynasty royalties, Peking University/Beijing University is renowned for its classical gardens designs and for having one of the most beautiful campuses.

University of Virginia







With grounds designed by United States' founding father Thomas Jefferson, the University of Virginia is among the most historically important universities in the U.S.. The university campus alongside with Monticello, also designed by Jefferson himself, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The honor is shared with only three other man-made World Heritage sites in the United States: the Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, and Pueblo de Taos. (Source: Wikipedia)

Hehe, everyone's just gonna put their school on here without regard to whether it actaully looks like crap or not.....

anyways, maybe not the best looking, okay, its the most hideos ever built, is the oral roberts university in tulsa. Of course, it was founded in the 60's by a televangelist, so what else do you expect:





The entire complex reminds me of the old sands in vegas. in fact, the whole place reminds me of vegas. which isnt a good thing since its a christian school.


*if you actually go there, then sorry, im just saying this tongue in cheek, we all know that there are far uglier places*

Columbia in New York is one of my favorites.








I also think the University of Wisconsin in Madison has a beautiful campus, although I'm a little biased because I went to school there. The buildings aren't necessarily as beautiful as Harvard or Oxford, for example. But, topographically, it's a beautiful campus. It's laid out on a narrow isthmus and has some nice hills.

ladolcevita good selections, I will say the same for Oxford and Beijing University. Rice University sure isn't the most beautiful in the world but it is the most beautiful in Texas, perfectly mix the old with new, with sculpures, fountains and gardens. It look like park more that University.
