A very nice building since the English era and very well maintained inside and outside. It's a place that you could visit during your presence in Khartoum.

It's the oldest and the biggest university in Sudan . The main campus in Aljama'a street was build during the British colonisation so the building are nice . There is active student life in this huge area . If you know someone who studies there you can arrange a visit and enjoy your coffee in the Almain street .

The monkeys show up in the afternoon and live on the... More

I had studied there and graduated 14 years ago and till now craving to walk through the main road and smell the aroma of its trees. Khartoum University is one of the famous place you shall visit when you come to Khartoum, it was one of the British legacy in Sudan.
