On the map

You can also browse the higher education institutions by location by clicking the icons marked in the map below. The map shows the majority of main campus sites; note that some institutions may also have branch campuses that are not all necessarily listed on the map. Whenever there are several higher education institutions in a single location, they are all listed in the same pop-up window.

You can move the map around by dragging it while holding down your left mouse key, and zoom in & out with your mouse scroll wheel.
