Some historical universities in Spain...

Starting with Salamanca. The façade of Salamanca university main building has already been shown by Ribarca in the previous page, but this a detailed view


http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Ca...d_de_Salamanca

Within the building there's also this Renaissance-style staircase.


http://www.artehistoria.jcyl.es/v2/obras/21954.htm

And this 16th c. library.


https://comerviajaramar.wordpress.co...7165_1183x800/


This is some corridor by the courtyard.


http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Ca...cuelas_Mayores


There's another building which was originally used for minor importance studies (Escuelas Menores). This is the courtyard (15th c.).


http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escuela...res_(Salamanca)

Here, at the ceiling in one of the classrooms, there's a painted 15th c. star map.


http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escuela...res_(Salamanca)


Besides the university proper there were several elite schools for the very wealthy people. These were called Colegios Mayores. Originally they were four, all founded in the 16th c., but Napoleon's troops destroyed two of them. Out of the remaining ones, there this one known as Colegio Fonseca:

The other (an 18th c. building, the older one was ruined by an earthquake) is Colegio Anaya:


http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colegio...Bartolom%C3%A9


http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colegio...Bartolom%C3%A9


http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colegio...Bartolom%C3%A9

In addition to all of those institutions, the jesuits built a new university of their own in the city in the 17th c. This is the courtyard.

And these are the two twin buildings of the jesuit university.

And that's enough for Salamanca.

Duke University, Durham, NC

Duke has a huge campus with 2 distinct styles of architecture. What was originally the men's campus is Gothic. What was the womens' campus (now used mainly for freshman classes) is Georgian or Federal.

Mainly student housing

My photos around the University of Toronto, taken today:
It's one of the greatest parts of the city, by far, and its a wonderful mix of old, new and everything in between.

The mix at Toronto's campus is convincing indeed, lovely architecture!

Bigger photos would be welcome (1024).
