“Impressive Classical Education”

The University of Guanajuato is an example of magnificent Mexican architecture in line with elegance of Guanajuato. The scuppers and masonry throughout the campus are breathtaking.

“The University: A big part of this city's vibe”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The university is spread out all over the city, but the big white building in the middle of town is usually the one everyone associates with "the university." U of Guanajuato has about 30,000 students and is a great place for exchange students to immerse themselves in both the language and the culture of Mexico. Very picturesque setting, friendly environment, and students in the arts -- musicians, mimes, actors, artists -- often perform in the plazas.
