“Nice place to look around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

I came here from the reviews on here, and it's a great place to go. You can see the history of the philippines through the museum and the old walls. When I went, there was a lot of students hosting an event. Although I could not understand much of what they were saying, they were having a lot of fun. If you're ever in Manila, stop here and check it out.

“400 Years of Excellence. Enough Said.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

More than an institution of learning this university also stands as a historical landmark in the Philippine history. Taking pride on the quality of students and professionals they produce, the alumnis speak for themselves. Proud to be a Thomasian!

“400 years and still standing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

i've stayed in this university for 6 years and it has never failed to keep on striving for excellence. they have changed the parking lots and now has a carpark building with dining establishments, a newly renovated park behind the main building, and so much more. The school just celebrated its 400th year anniversary. A lot of students are really proud to say that this school is a Royal and Pontifical University. no other school makes you feel at home than UST. inside this complex are not just the different colleges and faculties but also a museum for the arts, a hospital, a church, a bank, a post office and a lot of sports facilities. if ever you'll get to visit this place, don't forget to have a picture with the Benavides monument and the Main building.
