Beautiful buildings
Oct 2019
This is part of the places to visit for great photos in Cartagena. It houses the office of the Chancellor and administrative offices of the University, but it is also used for teaching a number of courses. I went in the morning and had to wait a few minutes to overcome the humidity and be able to take photos. Impressive hallways and gardens.

A beautiful campus in town
Mar 2019 • Solo
One can walk pass the security to get into the beautiful building without any problem. Once when I was there they were celebrating Women's Day and there were presentations on campus. The campus is right in the center of the town. They also have another campus where Garcia Marquez's ashes were stored in his bust. I understand the building was once a monastery used by the Jesuits.

My wife's alma mater
Jan 2018 • Couples
I can only speak to the faculty in the Nursing school, but they were very pleasant and friendly to me when I was on a visit with my wife. They were willing to show us around in spite of their busy schedules.

Great location
Aug 2017 • Couples
Newer building with a poor effort at making it look old with a poor paint job. In the heart of the old city.

Nice and beautiful

The Universidad de Cartagena has two great locations within the old city of Cartagena, one of which preserves Gabriel Garcia Marquez' ashes. Not to be missed.

A sublime courtyard
Jul 2017 • Couples
WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - YES
Inner courtyards are mostly a hidden, not-for-public use, architectural feature in Cartagena.

The University’s courtyard is accessible.

The outer walls of the University building are an unmistakable orange.

The sunlit courtyard is visible from the street through the darkened but spacious entrance hall and wrought iron gate of filigree design.
The presence of the guard(s) may look forbidding but they are perfectly amenable to requests to enter.

There are four benches at the centre under shade.

The gardens are managed and the grass and hedges mown and trimmed.

A delightful place to eat a fruit snack bought from a street vendor.

Impressive Building
Mar 2017 • Couples
The building is one of the largest in the walled city and is impressive. Walk inside and you will find a central garden like most Spanish buildings.Worth a visit.

Colonial era university, must see!
Nov 2016 • Couples
I found this on my first day city wall walk. Told the guard I wanted to take a few pics and he waved me in (it's good to be a senior). You walk into this gorgeous colonial inner courtyard garden with a statue of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. One side of the inner courtyard hallway honors Marquez and his famous books.
