It has a park in the centre known as 'Las islas' which is a great place to go running or just relax on the grass out of the busy D.F. life. There are many murals such as that on the the Central library. The Cultrual Centre of the University... More

As the name University City suggests, this place is like a city it´s so big! Like Mexico City itself, its just vast but so beautiful. More like a national park than a University it was wonderful to walk through, if you like that kind of thing. We went during the holidays so it was so tranquil. It took about 40... More

The Campus of Mexico's National University is full of pleasant surprises, incredible murals, theatres, museums, open areas, parks, stadiums and lots to do. Good transportation within this very large area.

I had the privilege to study a career at UNAM and I only have to tell you that it is one of the best experiences I ever had in my life. This uni is tremendously big! You have free access to its campus to ride on bike, walk your dog or visit your friends. Inside the uni you can visit... More

Yes it is a city on its own the university grounds are huge. If you fancy a walk or a stroll this is the place. Not to many people and very peaceful. The library has a great mural. You can access this place via Metro if you want or by car as well..

The place is huge and it may involve a lot of walking. Bear in mind this is a University, so it's really not a tourist place, you won't find maps or signs on English. Most students only know their own buildings and are unable to provide directions. Also avoid driving in there, there are a series of circuits with poor... More

The University campus is HUGE, and hard to reach. Do not attempt to do this on foot as I did. I was also a bit put off by the monumental size of the buildings.
