Vienna does not have a "real" campus in the meaning of a university ghetto. But it has a great campus in the city center where regular people and students, children and others share a great public space surrounded by university institutes, gastronomy and services.

The building is probably older than many othercampuses I guess as its from the late 17th and early 18th century. But it housed for all those centuries the general hospital of Vienna (and was also constructed for that purpose). After the hospital finally completely moved out in the last decades, it was adopted for the university and serves as campus now for not longer than 10 years or so.

The architcture might be not as spectacular as the one of some English speaking university buildings but it sure has a the elegance of age.

The campus are thos longstretched buildings with the green courtyards, the part in the upper left belong to another uniersity, the medical university.



The main building of the university is only a few blocks away at the imperial Ringstraße and quite impressive.


(same scale as above picture btw)

You can see both on this overview map in the context of the surrounding inner districts. The main university in Vienna has alarge number of other buildings spread out over the city, even a second campus like quarter (modern architecture), but I am too lazy to show here all of them.

When you look at large university campuses, do you think its necessary for their to be some sense of a unifying design/architectural direction to be taken when constructing new facilities or not?

I see some universities where every facility is clearly of the same architectural influence and have a lot of similarities in design and appearance. Do you think this is necessary? Or even desirable?

Not really necessary. Remember that in a lot of the older universities (such as Oxford) you actually see a whole gamut of architectural styles, depending on the period when a building was constructed.

For me, the important thing is the quailty of the architecture, rather than uniformity of style.
