As a matter of fact, I was just out photographing one of them last weekend. This is
the University of Toronto, which is the largest in Canada and has its campus downtown
in the heart of the city. There are others in the city: York and Ryerson, but here are some pix of the Uof T, founded by royal charter in 1827:

The main building of my university. Would you laugh at me if I said that this is one of the two most prestigous universities in Melbourne?

The photo is 33 years old, and they did build a huge extension in the 70s but it's no better today.

University of Glasgow - a huge university with a large mix of old and new. I will focus on the old parts of the university - some of the finest Gothic Revival architecture in the UK:

Main Building







Inside the University - huge open areas called "The Quadrangles"








The University Spire - one of the tallest structures in Glasgow - roughly 250ft tall





View from the University Library - 11th floor



View from the bottom of the spire, looking out over the south of Glasgow:

thanx for sharing those cool uni pictures. I have to stay european unis have great architecture, style and design. But they all appear as brown, grey and dark colours.

i think the US universities have greater mix of architecture and different colours.

A fairly new university. Although the buildings don't look that nice, the setting is stunning.

University of Western Australia.



The block with the cricket field on the river, is the whole uni.

This is the cricket pavillion. It was originally in Perth city, but the whole thing was cut in half and moved to here.

Inside the new Chemistry and Molecular Biology building. Nice piece of architecture. (see the DNA)


Lots of limestone arches


Thanks to Messrs Google and Wikipedia.
