Currently not in use, the student prison was opened in 1778 to serve as a punishing place for students who had committed minor offences like indiscipline, rule breaking, rowdy behaviour etc. Interestingly, in the years that followed it became more like a rite to passage into the University for Newcomers. However, it soon became more like a party for students who were confined here, and the original idea of the prison as a reprimand home was lost. The prison was officially shut down in 1914. The walls are covered in remarkable graffitis made by students over the years providing an exciting insight into the student life. Don’t forget to check-out the University museum too!
