Green Spaces
Around the Fountain

These gardens are a meeting point for the university community where one can take a moment to rest, study or work.

Flag Plaza Garden

The green area to the side of the library holds the Graduation Ceremony year after year.  A plaza containing all of America’s flags speaks of the international calling of the university.


This place has exquisite gardening that adorns the main facade of the building.

Guerra Florida Garden (2001)

Placed in front of the Presidency, it has a sculpture by Federico Silva that gives it its name.


This is an already traditional space used as much for recreation as for relaxation.  It has a collection of Leonardo Nierman sculptures and a complete ecosystem where carp and ducks live; it is also a temporary home for migrating birds.

Bougainvillea Walkway

Next to Ray Lindley College, one can enjoy the magenta intensity of the bougainvillea contrasting with the violet of jacarandas announcing the arrival of spring each year.

Rose Garden

This garden is the biggest on campus (2.5 Ha). One of its main attractions is the set of 7,800 rose bushes that enfold its visitors with their color and perfume.  It also has a collection of ferns, agaves and cacti.  This garden contains the Canada Plaza, the Agave Garden and the Meditation Garden.


The former Hacienda de Santa Catarina Mártir was built at the beginning of the 20th century and is the old core of our university. Inside its walls full of history there is a typical Sevillian patio with a fountain and different trees that cool the summer afternoons with their shade.

Humanities Garden 1993

This garden harmonizes with the architecture of the building.

Player Garden

The garden that connects the Engineering and Humanities buildings.  Its name derives from a sculpture built in two-tone native stone by Federica Silva as a tribute to the artist Marcel Duchamp.


These gardens adorn and frame the main space that the university has for academic and cultural events.

Floral University Seal

At the main campus entrance, the university seal is depicted with a variety of greenery that illustrates each of its symbols.

Talavera Walkway

It begins in the southern campus access (José Gaos College). The mix of cedars and bougainvillea frame a collection of Talavera urns along this path.

Doll Garden (2003)

The Talavera walkway leads to Heriberto Juárez Sculptures amid succulents and agaves, making this minimalist space a pleasant route between the School of Business and Gaos College.

Heriberto Juárez Garden (1998-1999)

This magical space, located between the business and social sciences buildings has an area of 2,300 m2. More than 150 species native to different Puebla regions are found here; it also houses one of the biggest collections – 29 sculptures – of the Mexican artist that gives it its name.
