    • The Agricultural University of Athens (AUA) (Greek: Γεωπονικό Πανεπιστήμιο Αθηνών) is the third oldest university in Greece. Since 1920, it has been making valuable contributions to Greek agricultural and economic development, by conducting basic and applied research in the agricultural sciences.

      The University is situated at the neighborhood of Votanikos, on a 25-hectare green campus that straddles both sides of the historic Iera Odos (the Sacred Way of antiquity), close to the Acropolis, at the heart of the ancient Olive Grove. Its sixteen buildings comprise: auditoriums, 41 fully equipped laboratories, a modern library, computer rooms, extensive agricultural facilities (an arboretum, vineyard, experimental fields, flower garden, greenhouses, cowshed, sheep pen, chicken coop, dairy installations, aquaculture tanks), museums, student center, indoor gym, and sports fields.
