  • Madras University is one of the oldest universities of Asia. The place is opposite to the Marina Beach. The campus has loads of colonial era red brick buildings. Special mention to the Senate House wh...  more »
  • Though this is an educational institution, i like it because of its architecture. Old buildings built in the colonial style.. long walkways.. high ceiling and cool interiors.. 
  • Inside the building are not visited, but probably as landmarks the University should be considered as a historical object, because it was built back in the 19th century by the British. Looks very beautiful in appearance resembles some kind of Castle, has a clock tower.

  • Completed my degree from here. Although the administration is really frustrating inside. Typical government office. Will be sent from one room number to another and back.
  • Really a great place to explore and learn. University filled with students from different States and Countries. Classical environment in the Marina arena.
  • It's better to not study than study here, the worst university beyond doubt, it has a very false repute amidst unsuspecting people, but once you get in you realise your blunder. They waste students time like hell, you never get certificates within a reasonable time, they will make you to run from pillar to post, for very trivial things, though it's common in govt institutions, this one has no time frame. Please avoid this university, you've many others like kamarajar or alagappa, which does decent work, don't ignore this as a rant, it's a fact which happens with this useless university, I've seen many people suffer because of the irresponsibility of the lazy staff here.
  • Best amenities best service for students
  • It's one of the best universities in South India.Many students of various states come here to join PG courses.
