The University goes to the city center to the seaside. There are shops, banks, buildings and gardens. Amazing!
Okay ... to be fair, the grounds are well maintained and looks okay ... but it's just a university, and for practical purposes, there's nothing to do except walking around ... Why such a high ranking on TA?
