Very nice to drive the surroundings by car, the area of the city is so huge. So many educational buildings and schools. Some very amazing buildings to see and take photos.

good school....
Jan 2020
This is my school. I go here and study at CEPE.

The murals and architecture are great. The school is world class and the program I am taking is pretty intense.

I would go five stars here if they layed off the attitude toward foreigners....it's a perception thing for me. You kind of get profiled and treated differently than others. I get it but I dont. The language division is pretty big and all but come on, we all pay to go to school here.

Oh, they also have a HUGE misogyny problem...HUGE.

Juan O'Gorman's library is the centerpiece of a great Campus
Jan 2020
Anyone interested in public education or universities should pay this campus a visit. It's fabulous, especially the mosaic-covered library!

Great Murals but Ugly Soviet Buildings!
Nov 2019
I was at UNAM main library and the murals are spectacular. Each side (north, south, west, east) represents a different moment in the history of Mexico: pre-Hispanic, the conquest of Mexico, modernity and the National University. The murals were painted by Juan O'Gorman, one of the main muralist in the 1950s.
The university is a little bit ugly; it seems a "Soviet university"

A beautiful building like no others
Nov 2019
The library tiled murals at the University of Mexico City designed by Diego Rivera are detailed, historical as well as incredibly designed. The entire building surface is used as a large canvas for the tiles and stories they relate. Take the time to go around it and enjoy it.

Saw this mural/building as part of a tour...don't do on your own
Oct 2019
As it is with any campus, it is a walk from parking to the building you want to see and it was a very warm day. No where to rest or hide under a tree during the long explanation of the entire mural. Yes, it's impressive but only to a point.

Came to see the largest mosaic
Nov 2019
This was part of a tour we were on. And quite frankly I probably wouldn’t of made a stop here wouldn’t be on my list to do. I would’ve rather gone to museums. But if you have extra time and I guess you’re really into mosaics you might want to see it

Botanical garden
Oct 2019
Make sure to take the free campus bus, the routes are posted at the stops and it makes getting around to explore faster and safer than on foot.
I went on a rainy day and even then it was lovely, the set up was really natural and complimentary to the enviroment.
I wasnt aware that you could do more than explore the garden and sculpture park, i will be sure to see more when i go back

A UNESCO attraction!
Sep 2019
This university was best seen and experienced by quide who could explain the mosaic that is attached to the library. It is in need of interpretation to be fully appreciatied! This is on the UNAM university grounds.
