“Plan your trip well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The City is truly a gem and you will understand why the UNESCO agrees. Before you go read up on the history and what to see. Transportation to and from as well as within the university grounds is easy and inexpensive. You have almost virtually free access to history, art, culture, libraries and bookstores, inexpensive places to eat and great green spaces to rest and take it all in, avoiding the crowds and spending your hard earned money. Feed your brain!

“FIRST UNIVERSITY IN THE NEW WORLD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The actual campus that houses most of the faculties was built in 1959 to make a conglomerate that would replace all the buildings that were spread out all over Mexico City. All the main disciplines of knowledge are covered with full 5 year degrees, master degrees and most with doctor degrees. Of very modern architecture with beautiful murals, the various buildings used to house more than 120,000 students in 1965, which are now more than 350,000. It is a must visit!

“Really cool University ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The CU is great.

The murals and buildings by the main entrance sandwiched between Universidad and Insurgentes are impressive. The large open spaces even more so.

The Olympic Stadium is a standing piece of modern Mexican history. Read about the history of the UNAM before going and it is even more interesting.

Nice place to get away from the city.

“I would love to study here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Loved the Central Library of Ciudad Universitaria! The murals are beautiful! And the stories they tell, truly awesome!

But what I loved the most was the Centro Cultural Universitario, the MUAC, not only for the exhibitions but for the restaurant that is really wonderful, with great food and great views!
