Just an Uni, nothing so special about it. Took me more than 30 minutes to queue to gain access, it is huge but not worth the queue

The grounds are beautiful, the staff and students are friendly and engaging. You will enjoy the architecture of some of the older buildings on campus as you walk through some of the smaller walkways.

The whole university is like a small island by itself. Inside you could find classes for all kinds of studies. Museum, bookstore are just some facilities a university one could find. Overall, the experience was good, an old charm within a city side.
