“A great place to plan a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This huge complex is filled with interesting places to visit. Like the MUAC, Sala Nezahualcoyotl and multiple theaters. The main university buildings are also worth a visit.

“A great feeling -the house of knowledge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I work in this place. It is known as the house of studios and not to be compared with any other school. Actually it´s one of the 100 best schools in the world and the best on this continent.

“A good day trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

This visit was paired with the Olympic stadium. The campus here is famous for Juan O'gorman murals festooning the entirety of one building. As you make your way around the building to see all the mosaics, you will see the sad state of unkempt ness that plagues these grounds. It deserves a bit better care. Other buildings are just as colorful. Visiting this campus is a great way to spend the day. The property is very spacious. Bring your comfy shoes.

“Murals, murals, and more murals.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

This is what you go for. Amazing that the whole site was completed in less than four years (in the late 1950s).

“Famous for its architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Architecture from the 50s, but unfortunately hasn't been given good maintenance. The students are very loyal and love their college commons though it could really use some maintenance...or basic cleaning.
