From the metro it took us about 40 minutes to walk... 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.

This huge complex is filled with interesting places to visit. Like the MUAC, Sala Nezahualcoyotl and multiple theaters. The main university buildings are also worth a visit.

I work in this place. It is known as the house of studios and not to be compared with any other school. Actually it´s one of the 100 best schools in the world and the best on this continent.
