Every university has it's own unique architecture and culture. As students, many of us tend to find that one location on campus that's both conducive to studying and inspiring. This is what makes La Unam quite different.

The Universidad Nacional Autonomo de Mexico was founded in 1551 in Mexico City and is the second largest university in North America. In fact, with an enrollment of 270,000 students, this makes La Unam one of the largest universities in the world.

So what makes La Unam unique? If you find yourself at the campus library, you'll see the world's largest mosaic mural painted by Juan O'Gorman, depicting scenes from Mexico's precolonial past up until the future. The library had it's grand opening in 1956, and it's just one of the collection of buildings on campus that makes Unam a World Heritage Site.

Today, several locations can be found in the United States, Canada, and other parts of Mexico. La Unam is considered one of the best institutions of higher education in Latin America.
