Google Street View extends reach to university campuses

Students looking to study in the United States or Canada can now take a new virtual walking tour of 36 university campuses there, as Google adds them to its Street View database this weekend.

They are the latest additions to the hundreds of college campuses all over the world ready for students – and their parents – to explore on Google Maps.

In the capital of the United States, Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. is home to the iconic Healy Hall, a National Historic Landmark built in Romanesque revival style.

For those with a taste for the tropics, the University of Miami down south, with its scenic pathways winding through palm trees and clear blue water, might be the place for you.

Up north, the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada can get pretty cold, but students can take advantage of its beautiful greenery when the sun is shining.

This is one handy feature for those heading overseas for student exchange or tertiary studies. To see if your dream school is featured, check out Google’s Street View gallery or run a search for the school and click on Pegman, the yellow man that resides on the bottom-right corner of Google Maps.
