This beautiful campus is centralized by a shady courtyard, where students can gather between classes. It’s beauty is all the more enriched by the city of Saint Louis, a short 12 kilometers away.

Located at the northern tip of Senegal, this seaside town is lined with colorful French colonial-era architecture; the campus’ architecture is a little more modern.

While GBU’s first stone was laid by Senegal’s first president in 1975, the school didn’t welcome its first students until 1990. The university was renamed in 1996, after the French philosopher who was born in Saint-Louis.
