    Royal Holloway is a very pretty palace, too good to be a university building. RH was my insurance choice, I went to Nottingham after rejecting UCL for financial reasons. Oh well, there is always time for a masters at either RH or UCL!

    ]The main QUB building is gorgeous. [/B]And I see a lot of the Cambridge buildings too - very pretty.

    But I don't think I could study in really old buildings. Like I think they're nice to look at but I prefer more modern buildings in general.
    This :love:. The Lanyon building is stunning . I love the QUB campus :suith:

    I also think the main building at TCD is stunning, too!

    I generally don't like the look of red brick faced buildings especially if it is a monotone brickwork.

    I like St Andrews. Oxford and Cambridge both have some beautiful buildings and most are quite well preserved considering their age. Having said that many of Oxford's and Cambridge's buildings isn't exactly that beautiful and some of the newer buildings don't blend in very well with the old ones.

    Universities outside UK that I like a lot :-

    Uppsala.
    Heidelberg.
    Salzburg.
    Oslo.
    Bergen.

    Which university is this? :O
    It is the UK campus of the University of Evansville at Harlaxton near Grantham. If you ever get the chance to see it, take it.

    They say seeing is believing. I've seen it. I still don't believe it.

    http://www.harlaxton.co.uk/

    I always wonder what the mid-west students who go to Evansville must think the first time they see it.

    It is nice, but Royal Holloway is just as good. Greenwich is also very distinct.

    Greenwich has better architecture than Harlaxton. However nowhere is built on the same monumental scale; not Royal Holloway; not Trinity, Cambridge; not Marischal in Aberdeen (the second largest granite building in the world); not Glasgow. It just shows what money and lack of taste can do.

    Although it does have a fair share of ugly buildings, the Boyd Orr always gets a special mention for being visually unappealing. Luckily most of my classes will be in here!
