Aww, would we be a wee bit biassed? To compare the two to architectural and cultural greats such as Oxford and Cambridge is a little... Difficult.

Cape Town Uni seems to be a looker, but I'd not match it to two of the worlds original Universities considering Oxford was founded before 1096 (first established records of it existing) and Cambridge 1209 I'd say they're looking pretty good! They aren't just Universities, they are the lifeblood of both of the cities - they ARE the cities!

sorry for not having any pictures but the world's most beautiful university campus would be the Universiti Teknologi Petronas/ Petronas University of Technology in Malaysia.
it won the Aga Khan Architectural Award and was design by Foster and Partners.

you can find the pictures from the Malaysian Forum. The Petronas University's design is modern and futuristic but wait til you see the University of Cambridge. Its beauty is jaw dropping.

My vote goes with my school, Virginia Commonwealth University. Its a more urban school that alot of universities but I still like it. That actually may be why I like it.

First...lets start with the dorms:

Johnson Hall:



The other 2 larger Dorms:






A public space between the main dining area and the hideous library:



Dining Hall Exteriour (apologies for the quality of the image, my camera is(was) crap:



Inside of the Dining Hall:




Landmark Theatre (formerly 'the Mosque')





This building is the "Egyptian Building", a pretty rare example of Egyptian Revival style architecture in the US




VCU Student Commons:



This is the VCU Adcenter, a very highly ranked marketing school in the country. It is a converted old buiding, you can see the old building versus the new addition.





VCU Business School (opened Jan 14th 08)




This building houses some administrative offices:


Cathedral Located in the heart of campus:




Ok..the best thing about the campus is the surrounding neighborhood...the famed "Fan District" It is famed as one of the longest stretches of Victorian Architecture in the US



Historic Rowhouses:



Fountain in Monroe Park (the central park of VCU)




VCU campus in Qatar:







OK.......Maybe its not the "most beautiful in the world" but can I pleeeeaassseee pretend it is for just a little while? Im proud of my school.

Cambridge would look much better with a lot of big trees. It's great looking but would be terrible on a hot day.
