The cloisters offer a very welcome refuge from the sun and the crowds, and the 'Salamanca sky' gives an extraordinary insight into fifteenth century astrological thinking. Just after lunch there was hardly anyone else there.
To get there, face away from the famous facade of the university, go past the statue of Frey Luis and head for the left-hand corner at the back of the square. There, you'll see a hole in the wall, a sort of arch. Go through that and you'll find you're in the cloister. The Salamanca sky is through a door hallway along the wall at the far side.
