Princeton University - Princeton, NJ - USA

Princeton University was established in 1746.


Princeton University Chapel - Princeton, NJ - USA


West Point Military Academy - West Point, NY - USA

West Point Military Academy is a military service academy that was established in 1802. It is also home to the nation's oldest military installation (established in 1778) and the federal silver reserves of the United States. Graduates are called "The Long Gray Line" because of the color of their uniforms. And like the other five federal service academies, cadets are not called "freshman" or "senior", but called instead "fourth class" (freshman), "third class" (sophomore), "second class" (junior), and "first class" (senior). West Point's campus is also one of the largest in the world at 16,000 acres. West Point (and its sister academies), argueably, the most difficult institute of higher learning to get into in the world.

Graduates are all awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree and are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the US Army.


Cadets and their distinctive gray uniforms.


A university in the Mediterranean? One of the great things about the US is that there is a university for every taste. No, what you see above is the prestigious Stanford University in Stanford, California. The spanish motif is very much in force here. The Bay Area, where this university is, is truly one of the prettiest regions in the world.


Harvard University, located in the city of Boston, is the nation's oldest and wealthiest university in the world with $19 billion in endowments. It was established in 1636.


This is Yale University, located in New Haven, Connecticut. It is the second wealthiest university in the world, just ahead of Princeton University and the University of Texas. Yale was established in 1701

I go to the University of Kent, in Canterbury England...I can't post any pics for some reason, I'll let you do your own research if you're really interesting, safe to say the campus was designed by a man who designed prison, who killed himself shortly after..

Oxford is very distinguished architecturally.

Peking University (I love them keeping the old name!) used to be an imperial palace, is this correct? It was most impressive.

U of Virginia has distinguished architecture by US standards. I like William and Mary, also.

If you like Philip Johnson, next time when you go to Houston, Texas, go check out the last masterpiece by late Philip Johnson, it is the St. Basil Chapel at University of St. Thomas


If you want to know more about this chapel here is the link: http://www.stthom.edu/chapel/

Man, the Pacific Northwest has some really nice universities. The University of Washington Campus had always been a favorite, and now the University of British Columbia is up there too!

Wow! I thought universities were a place of inspiration; promoting a dynamic exchange of ideas and thoughts, framed and reflected by a tangible, built expression in stone and glass; some of these campuses must only specialise in accountancy - some were just plain nondescript crimes against humanity...no.1 spot here goes to the University of Arizona

anyone got any pics of some of the continental European ones? Bologna for example
