This university gives one a sense of students who take advantage of the outside spaces to sit and study or chat with a classmate. I always love walking over the grounds to enjoy the beautiful flowers and the warm atmosphere of the students and togetherness

Gorgeous architecture, excellent teachers, great university! Ok, so the halls are a bit messy since there is so many separated rooms, but it's an excellent school. Close to all amenities.

It is kind of hard to review as the campus has clumps of buildings all over the place. The Architecture buildings are closer to downtown and somewhat interesting.

Dalhousie is one of Canada's great classic universities. Most of the architecture is impressive. Our main reason to visit the campus, however, is for symphony concerts in the comfortable Rebecca Cohn Auditorium.
