Releases Ranking of the 30 Most Beautiful European College Campuses has published its 2017 list of the 30 Most Beautiful College Campuses in Europe.

Europe is one of the birthplaces of the modern University and is especially well known for its beautiful architecture. Because of this, we thought it fitting to pull together a list of the 30 most beautiful campuses, whether for the purpose of tourists looking for destinations to visit, or students looking for aesthetically pleasing schools to attend.

While beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder, and open to interpretation, our editorial team sought to make the list of beautiful European schools as objective as possible by deriving a consensus from other well-respected publications. Some of the key criteria used to judge a campus’ beauty were: the design and appearance of an institution’s architecture; any particularly picturesque natural features, such as lawns, botanic gardens and arboretums; any other notable features of landscaping that helped to highlight its attractiveness.

Below is a list of all 30 schools included.
