If you fancy forgoing your usual virtual vacation to faraway places in favor of a studious Street View tour around a selection of the world’s educational institutions, then now’s your chance.
Google has announced the expansion of its database of Street View imagery for college campuses across the globe, on Thursday introducing walking tours for 36 additional universities.
With a new academic year fast approaching, the new content could certainly be of interest to incoming students (or simply the curious minded) keen to explore the sites, which include the likes of Georgetown University in DC, the University of Miami, and the University of Regina in Canada’s Saskatchewan province.
Beyond North America you can take a stroll around establishments such as the University of Glasgow in Scotland and Keio University in Tokyo, Japan.

Google has been working to upload Street View data for educational institutions for some time now. In 2012 it added panoramic imagery for 150 university campuses located around the world, including for California’s UCLA and Sophia University in Japan.
