Bockenheim U-bahn (underground) station is the closest to Frankfurt's university and one entrance is designed to look like a train carriage busting from the ground:

ArTez, Arnhem's Art School (partly undergound at 10 metres from the Rhine) is very close to the main station which will look like this in 2012:



Wageningen University doesn't even have a railway. There are very frequent services from this 1970's crap:



Well connected though; from Arnhem: six trains an hour.

Business School and 'Hogeschool' our polytechnic in Presikhaaf:



Velp (Forestry, Landscape)



Nijmegen, Heijendaal:



All from the wonderful amateur work of the Stationsweb pages:

Here's Production way/University in Vancouver. It doesn't technically go to the university itself (which is high on a mountain :P), but there is a BRT from the station to the university.

I remembering hearing that SFU wanted to put in some kind of trolly or LRT from that station to the campus as part of its univercity development

UBC may get a station if they extend the millenium line all the way there

-For the UAB campus, they have 2 railway stations: the FGC station on Barcelona-Sabadell line and, near the AP-7 motorway have the RENFE station, surronding trains line 7 connected by the campus for free shuttle buses.
-For UPC campus in Terrassa, actually the only way to go to this is by urban bus, lines 1, 3, 6, 7 and 10. In the future the trains of Barcelona-Terrassa line stops at this location. By foot the RENFE station (surronding trains line C4 and regional trains to Lleida) is 15 minutes away, bus line 10 connects the UPC with the station but only have a bus every 30-40 minutes aproximately.
And the universities in Girona, Lleida and Tarragona the only way to go in is the bus. I don't know that the Vic's university is far away from RENFE station (Barcelona-Ripoll-Puigcerdà line).

In Montpellier there are if I recall well three universities + 1 institute of technological sciences:

Montpellier 1 (law, medicine, economics, pharmaceutical sciences, odonto-stomatology, administrative sciences and physical education)

Montpellier 2 - Université des Sciences et Techniques du Languedoc

Montpellier 3 (social sciences and arts)

and

IUT institut universitaire de technologie

They all have faculties outspread in Montpellier, but Montpellier 2 (main building) has one stop called "Universités - sciences et lettres" , which is also quite close to Montpellier 3. But the closest stop for Montpellier 3 is "Saint Eloi". That's where I used to get off once upon a time.

Tramway station: Universités Sciences et Lettres



PS: FYI, an IUT is not "independant". In this case, it is linked with the University Montpellier II.

Boston has a bunch of universities, and all of them have stations.

MIT has one on the red line, Harvard as well. Boston University has many stops on the Green Line B branch. Kenmore, Bladford, BU East, BU Central, BU West, St Paul's, and Babcock.

Boston College is at the end of the B branch (stop is called "Boston College"). Northeastern has its own stops on the E branch.

Harvard also has many electric buses (Trackless trolleys) around its campus.

Edit: Pictures I stole, not taken by me, Im not in them.
