I think the most unique university in the world would have to be Simon Fraser University. Unlike most uni's, it was almost completly built in 30 months, and was designed by the famous Aurthur Eirkson...and the views from it are amazing

I don't have time to psot picts, but here are some links
Campus
The AQ
Convocation Mall

the concrete can get to you after awhile though

I'm studying there right now
