Rain or shine, UP is the best place to unwind. Jogging along the oval is one of the popular fitness activities in the campus. Its lush trees provide cover from the searing sun rays or raindrops. Grab some bites in front of the College of...More

Acacia trees are all over UP, making the place a popular spot among tourists. Stroll around UP, be mesmerised by the different takes of its College's buildings. Make sure to stop at the one of their many canteens.

It was so nice to reminisce my college years! We went to watch Haruki Murakami`s film Tony Takitani. The university has changed over the years. There are new buildings amidst the old ones of my youth. Ikot jeepneys still traverse the streets. But the recent...More

The entrance to the university is very impressive. I was lucky to come here with a local student so had a very interesting tour of the grounds and there are things to see here if you get to this part of the busy Manila.

UP campus - the road around the Sunken Garden is closed for Sunday joggers, cyclists, and people of all ages enjoying each other’s company. Vendors of banana, camote, ice cream, bean curd “taho” and corn are busy within the area. My 3-year-old granddaughter looks forward...More
