How about ...
University will be open to ALL... eventually. But Kaliphlin has a month head start, if there is no progress (in form of WIP photo) in one month's time (let's make it Oct 1st to keep it simple) it's open for anyone else.
So essentially we'll start off as a community college then moving up to International fancy-pants University and welcome all from Historica?
And I'll offer up two sets of prizes, one for best Kaliphlin build, and one for best build period - which may or may not be won by Kaliphlin.
Yes sir! Community college? That gives me an idea...
Rightio, my architects are off to pore over building plans for the lecture theatre.

Well, we can certainly have more than one room of a particular type. Such as multiple libraries, because, of course, the university is made up of a bunch of different colleges, and each should probably have its own dorms, libraries, refectory, etc.
Oops, I misread your question! I'd suggest if you create multiple rooms in the same building, or ones that are closely related to each other, put them in the same thread. Otherwise in separate threads.
And we ought to have one master University thread for general uni building discussion. The first post in it should be an index with, for each individual university MOC thread, a name/description, name of builder, link to the specific thread, and one reasonably sized photo. Perhaps the second post in it can be a list of build ideas, and we'll cross them off as people complete them (although that part might be best done on the wiki so everyone can edit it).
Great idea for a master thread - i don't have much time to get that up atm though, can anyone else tackle it? I think Damximus made a sweet list of possible subjects/ideas a couple of pages ago.

OK, I understand. Yes, I agree, we should have on general thread and an idea list is a good idea.
Does anybody have any ideas as to how modern or ancient we want this to look? More Medieval or more like Renaissance time period (probably not anywhere after that would be my guess)?
Are you talking about architechture, or artifact technology, or clothing or what? Your guess at no later than the European renaissance is a pretty good rough guide, although i'd suggest you do a bit of background reading on the Islamic golden age as well. This
is also an interesting list of ideas that we could incorporate into our university builds.
Anyway, just don't put any telephone poles or computer terminals in and you'll probably be alright.
