I think the access is not open to everybody but the library is old-style and nice. If possible, try to go the tower to see Vilnius from above.

The tour through the university courtyards and church made for a pleasant hour or so. I wouldn't say that's it's a "must-see," but if you have some spare time it's worth a visit.

Nowadays most of the universities are ultramodern buildings. Nice that the old, historical building is still used as university.

The University complex is a series of buildings arranged around courtyards, right in the middle of the Old town. It has a number of architectural and historical features including a magnificent church and bell tower. It's also worth visiting the bookshop to see its painted ceilings.

I was quite impressed by the architecture, though I think I got lost and actually somehow missed parts of the campus. Regardless, the guy let me in for free so I can't complain about that one!
