“Stunning”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

A really beautiful building, the façade is stunning. There's a great little cafe here too.

Apparently the building houses some of the most up-to-date facilities and resources for students anywhere

“My Alma Mater”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

When I was student, I learned to know the university inside and outside. It is marvelous place to have a education. Usually a tourist looks at the building outside. The masterpiece of new classical architecture by Engels. So pure classical example. I love those Ionian pylons and the fine pediment.
