A sprawling campus with 40,000+ students from which I also an alumnus. Being somewhat biased, it is a beautiful campus with predominantly red brick buildings and huge mall. Certainly it is "the" university in Arizona.

Very walkable with lots of beautiful buildings and vegetation. We happened to walk around when the Festival of Books was in town so parking was free and the students were on Spring break....great restaurants surround the campus.

During my recent visit to Phoenix, AZ, I decided to the University of Arizona campus during our day getaway to Tucson. University of Arizona is well designed and has a beautiful campus. The university is big with a student population of well above 42,000. Do not drive during normal business hours as the number of students walking will make driving... More

My daughter was in town playing in a collegiate spring volleyball tournament at the McHale Center. There is parking directly in front of the facility - you park in a spot then pay at an electronic booth which takes credit cards! Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful, clean campus.

Nice and quiet, pretty campus for being downtown. We were there during spring break, so didn't see too many people.

Turn back the clock 45 years and I would have loved this campus. It looks small enough to get around. Cool strip of restaurants near by. lots of interesting trees and plants on site.
