The magazine based its selection on campuses’ stunning physical settings, overall design or architecture, and the University of Cincinnati is among this list of most beautiful, inspirational campuses thanks to its collection of masterful architecture by the globe’s best designers.

Others making this international Top Ten list include the University of Virginia designed by Thomas Jefferson, Tsinghua University in Beijing which sits amid the former Qing dynasty gardens and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.

Of UC, Sky stated: “Here, architecture students can literally study among the best. In 1989, the school decided to revitalize the campus, asking top architects – including Frank Gehry and alumnus Michael Graves – to design its new buildings.”

This is not the first time UC’s architecture has been selected for international kudos. Prestigious outlets from The New York Times to the Los Angeles Times have written about UC’s design and architecture, and last year, Forbes magazine also named UC among the world’s most beautiful college campuses, along with schools like Oxford University in England as well as Princeton, Stanford, Yale and the University of Virginia.
