University of Athens, Greece
The 3 story university building was designed by architect Stamatis Kleanthes. It is the oldest University in Southeast Europe.
The university system has been in continuous operation since it opened in May 3, 1897. The building has been used as housing for immigrant families (1922) and a taverna was in operation in the ground floor for many years. In 1963 the building was registered as a national monument of Greece and was integrated back into the University.
