    College de Valleyfield is in Valleyfield, Quebec, Canada.
    You do realise that's photoshopped, right? The building looks like that, but it's been placed in that setting, it was part of an art project by a student in 2007.

    Anyway, Stanford is vulgar, Glasgow and then Aberdeen are head and shoulders above the rest in Scotland but still have their share of ugly buildings, and I'm guessing not many people have actually seen the rest of UCL or Royal Holloway... I don't think there is an easy answer to this. Maybe Princeton, Penn or Yale.

    This has to be a contender though: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...7#post20271177

    Those pictures are edited and stylised (in terms of photography) to the max!

    No, not compared to those, love. My RH one was simply an aerial photograph, which I doubt had any editing.

    Oxford, Magdalen.

    A bit biased, but heyyyy :P
    Seconded. A fellow Magdalen applicant! It's GORGEOUS.

    I also quite liked Bath. Nice Georgian house and big lake with ducks and stuff.

    No but it's perfectly sunny with the lighting amazing and it's taken from a certain angle. It's edited just as much as those of Cambridge.

    Please don't call me love :no:

    Whilst Founders (Royal Holloway) is stunning and breath-taking from the inside, it's pretty rubbish inside (apart from the dining hall/picture gallery/chapel/upstairs of library)!

    Also, most of the other buildings on campus are hideous, especially the Arts building and the Bourne labs. I do like how modern the Windsor building and the Hub are though

    England does enjoy sun occasionally, you know? Absolute tosh that it's edited/stylised to the extent of those photos.

    Please don't call me love :no:
    Sure, sweetie.

    I'm afraid I don't really see it. Despite the slightly continental stylings, St Salvator's quad and the buildings around it are all rather bleak and stern to my eye; aside from that there are some modern buildings of little if any merit, some fairly undistinguished old houses etc...

    St Salvator's Hall is one of the buildings I do like - an excellent example of what a hall of residence should be, but hardly notable - and then the Younger Hall where they all graduate from, which is very nice but not at all inkeeping with the local architectural vernacular. It should have been built in Edinburgh.

    Ive been there several times, and apart from that one building (beautiful though it may be), most of the campus is kind of crappy. :p:

    I will vote for one of the Oxbridge's colleges, Durham or Exeter.
    Apart from the Bailey colleges, castle, cathedral (Palace Green - all of these are admittedly stunning) and one or two buildings elsewhere most of Durham is crappy :p: Nothing to shout about anyway

    I think the Universities at Medway (Greenwich, Kent and Canterbury Chirstchurch) should have a bit of a mention!

    Hild Bede has some lush buildings :o: Anyway, I guess it's the older buildings and their surroundings (i.e. the city itself) which make people think it's beautiful, and I would agree it's lovely. Once you get up on the hill, though ... yeah.
