I resided at the periphery of the UP-Diliman campus for almost fourteen (14) years (2001-2014), and I know every nook and crook of this over 493-hectare school site. Since I was born and bred in a city situated on a rolling and rugged terrain, and went to college on a mountain university, I got the treat of being and feeling... More

UP Diliman is a place where you can communicate with nature since it has a lot of green. Many go here for a jog and also dogs are also welcome here. You and your best buddy can bond here!

I wanted to visit my dads alma mater but was a bit disappointed at the overall condition of the campus and buildings. The lagoon and stream smelled rotten and the buildings were worn. I hope that more alumni can donate to keep the schools maintained!

The best university in the Philippines. Campus has street lined trees that gives shade to passersby. Very green.

I studied and worked here. UP is not just for its students - it is open for all to see and enjoy. And there is something for everyone here (at the main campus). Jogging / cycling? Playing football / frisbee? Museum? Movies? Street food? Concert / seminar place? Hostel? Book binding? Bird watching? Name it. The campus can almost always... More

Excellent for walking - the academic oval is 2.2 km per round. Safe since half of the road is dedicated to pedestrians. Walk anytime since the whole oval is shaded by large trees. Wide range of street food available all over the campus, street corners, inside building cafeterias, Area 2 row of small carinderia and The Chocolate Kiss. Walk or... More

This place is for those looking for a convenient place to jog, walk or bike within Quezon City. Since this is a campus, lots of foot traffic on Tues-Fri, so best to go Sat-Sun-Mon. I personally love the ancient trees arched over the main road as I jog/walk. We have even tried bringing picnic breakfast at the Sunken Garden -... More

I make this review not for those familiar with UPD. If you're ready and committed to healthy living, or ok, fun, you might want to consider introducing yourself and your family to wholesome exercise (or games) at the University grounds, for starters. Sleep early on a Saturday night in exchange for a vibrant Sunday morning. Start before sunrise. Bring water... More

if you want to just be able to walk around or bike, look at tall trees and enjoy clean air in the middle of polluted quezon city then this will be a good place to visit. it also houses a museum and has artworks made by national artists spread around the whole campus!! there are many places to eat too!!...

With its huge vicinity, UP Diliman is great for outdoor activities like jogging and running. Also, this place will definitely bring you closer to nature with the lush vegetation. The 2 KM plus UP Academic Oval, you can jog around with fellow runners enjoying the breeze and shade for the decades old trees.
