The University of Hamburg is nothing special architecturally. Most of the buildings were built in the 60's and 70's and many are scattered around the whole city . Only the main building is pretty enough IMO. The University of Hamburg with ca. 40.000 students is really young by european standards - founded 1919.

main building (before it became the main university building, it was the africa insitute)


Geomatikum (housing the geoscience faculty)


a very old picture of the campus of the University of Hamburg with the "Philosophenturm" (the highrise. It houses several arts sciences, especially linguistic and history subjects. Most of the buildings here have been renovated in the last years)


"Pferdestall" (houses the department of social sciences)

"Wiwi-Bunker" (housing the economic sciences)


Audimax at the Campus, one of the better buildings of the university



There are more universities in Hamburg. Especially in the last years a lot of private schools and akademies have been founded. But I'm too lazy to find pictures of them.

Great collection of university pictures! I think it's one of the best things to invest lots of money in.

Th buildings are scattered throughout the city, but the main building is the beautiful Academie-gebouw:

This is the best private university in Mexico and Latin America, and one of the most expensive. The ITESM (Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey) or simpley Tec, is the MIT of Latin America. It ranks among the best universities in the world and its business school, the EGADE ranks first in Latin America along with the IPADE, another Mexican business school.


Tecnológico de Monterrey or Monterrey Institute of Tecnologie

Students: 95,777
Campus: 33
International Seats: 7 (Bogota, Guayaquil, Lima, Medellin, Miami, Panama City and Quito).
Offices around the world: 13 (Barcelona, Beijing, Boston, Brussels, Dallas, Guangzhou, Madrid, Montreal, Paris, Shanghai, Friburg, Vancouver and Washington).
Universities with agreements around the world: 300 (it's the university that has more international agreements).

Some pitcures of Campus that I have. Every Campus is unique, and I would like to post a picture of the 33 Campus, but I don't have them.


Monterrey Campus (18,000 students aprox.)


Guadalajara Campus (6,000 students aprox.)


Aguascalientes Campus (1,500 students aprox.)


Mexico City Campus (10,000 students aprox.)


Santa Fe Campus (8,000 students aprox.)

Texas Tech University was once ranked one of the ugliest college campuses in the US. It's also one of the youngest @ around 80 years.

Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm

Nothing really special, except for the Architecture section a bit into the city....

View from the old observatory:


Physics, more modern section:



One of the first nuclear reactor halls in the world (maybe it is the oldest actually) where they now have some theater and such. It's quite a bit underground:



And finally, what you all have been waiting for....

KTH - Architecture section! () Irony in its finest form!
