For a university it is nicely built and large. The area is very congested with traffic so plan on being caught in crowds. As with most universities, it has very limited funds so many of the buildings are a bit distressed. I was told that it has a large museum-but did not see it.

I had a good meeting with the prof I needed to meet and he was a good source of information. Everyone was very helpful.

The Kinshasa univeristy (the "Lovanium") is the big public university of Kinshasa occupying a sprawling hilly area. Some parts date from the 50s and 60s and have some archeological charm.
