It was my first time to visit the UP Oval. It is the perfect jogging place for beginners and professional runners. Shady and cool with lots of joggers even at 7am! Other jogging places would be too hot already at that hour but here it still had the perfect temperature for a good run. What's best is parking was free!... More

During my seminar there are numerous road diggings. Some of its buldings are dilapidated. The government should increase rhe budget for the maintenance and expenses of the country's top university.

I always love going to UP Diliman to relax and walk around the oval especially in the afternoon. There are lots of trees, benches where one can sit and take a break or just contemplate. What's good about this place is that the oval is closed on Sundays for joggers, bikers, and hikers. It's also pet friendly. There are budget... More

Past 5pm is good time to walk around the State University's Diliman campus. There are available walk-ways to avoid the vehicular traffic.

Nothing is spectacular about this place. I found the lawns ill-maintained and the whole place sort of scary to visit at night because nothing is well lit. Maybe the campus of the oldest Asian university, the University of Sto. Tomas, or the campus of Ateneo De Manila will be more fun to visit.

I love the University of the Phils., Diliman.... beautiful huge trees line up the main road that gives ample shade and makes a good background for pictures--- it makes exercising around the campus close to nature. It really is the place to go to if you want a quick run or jog anytime of the day. On weekends, it's a... More

I Love the Diliman campus so much, it holds so many wonderful memories for me. As I had a recently revisited here for a unrelated group gathering I had some time to see the large oval with the trees and vast greener that can be seen across the campus and it especially reminded me of the love that I have...
