  • Is the best University of the country. A campus where you can enjoy both a studio space, and different expressions of art, culture and thought. The OWL-shaped campus is an expression of impressive architecture. A place to visit for any foreigner visiting Colombia.

  • The so-called white city is lost amongst huge pastures with trees under which students read or love each other freely. In the central square (called Plaza Che) converge students from all regions of Colombia who laugh, argue, play, or study under the frowning gaze of Ché Guevara. Unfortunately the Colombian State has neglected the protection of heritage, leaving many buildings to their fate.
