I have studied there for only 5 months as an exchange student, but I am surprised by the friendly administration. No wonder why students go back to Tartu's university. P.S. You should see the building in winter!

A nice university, worth passing if in the area. A few nice cafes around and a wonderful park, just behind. We didn't do a guided tour

As one of the oldest universities in Europe it has a very rich history and an incredible reputation. The architecture is neoclassical and beautiful.

A majestic, white building with wide rooms with an excellent acoustic for concerts. It's not just an university, it's a space for Art and Music.

Historical place/house. A lot of well know people, scientists on 19th, 20th centuries studied in Tartu university. Currently the central building is under renovation, but University consists of several buildings, institutes. It is interesting to visit it! And library/libraries as well.

Its a very tiny town, so the university building looks really impressive in the context of small houses and old architecture. Good for a short look around, renovated and something you would want to see during your trip to Estonia.

There are some impressive buildings but generally that is about it. You cannot miss it in this town. Don't go out of your way looking for it!

Amazing building, classic shape but for me to hidden from the tourists. In fact is in the old town, but not everyone is coming there, but is worth to see it.
