“Beautiful Campus.”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I took a short course here, and it was a very interesting experience. It's a great way to meet locals, and they offer a lot of interesting classes that cost next to nothing. Also, my classroom had a Soviet-era feel, and it was interesting to have a sense of that bygone era.

“Beautiful University Campus”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The University of Havana Campus is simply beautiful and well worth walking through. You get a feeling of what Cuban College students are like,plus get to admire all the beautiful buildings/statues. Its Free, Centrally located and doesnt take much of your time.
Its Great for quick rest stop and photo taking.

“Superb”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The Havana university is near the Hotel Nacionale. If you have time do visit the place, experience the beautiful buildings and the simple way of student life. The university is set within stunning plants and trees. It has a single military tank in the middle compound, an aid to the Cuban revolution.

“Impressive but falling apart”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

It is impressive to imagine how Fidel once used to come and talk to the students at the stairs to this university. The entrance is grand and really majestic. On a closer look you will notice that the place is falling apart. Windows are glass less and the place is dirty. A shame.
