“Nice place to look around”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

I came here from the reviews on here, and it's a great place to go. You can see the history of the philippines through the museum and the old walls. When I went, there was a lot of students hosting an event. Although I could not understand much of what they were saying, they were having a lot of fun. If you're ever in Manila, stop here and check it out.

“400 Years of Excellence. Enough Said.”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

More than an institution of learning this university also stands as a historical landmark in the Philippine history. Taking pride on the quality of students and professionals they produce, the alumnis speak for themselves. Proud to be a Thomasian!

“400 years and still standing”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

i've stayed in this university for 6 years and it has never failed to keep on striving for excellence. they have changed the parking lots and now has a carpark building with dining establishments, a newly renovated park behind the main building, and so much more. The school just celebrated its 400th year anniversary. A lot of students are really proud to say that this school is a Royal and Pontifical University. no other school makes you feel at home than UST. inside this complex are not just the different colleges and faculties but also a museum for the arts, a hospital, a church, a bank, a post office and a lot of sports facilities. if ever you'll get to visit this place, don't forget to have a picture with the Benavides monument and the Main building.
