I had a good meeting with the prof I needed to meet and he was a good source of information. Everyone was very helpful.

“Not much to visit here”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The Kinshasa univeristy (the "Lovanium") is the big public university of Kinshasa occupying a sprawling hilly area. Some parts date from the 50s and 60s and have some archeological charm. However most of the university is in bad need of maintenance and money. The roads are poor and the buildings crumbling. Student housing is so insufficient there is serious overcrowding.
The only upside of a possible visit is that in some parts it is quiet and offers reasonable views ove Kinshasa. A main reason not to go is that traffic around the university can be really bad.
