It is the campus for most students in their third or fourth year. International students of all years attend this campus, as well as academics in special programs. It is the location of the office of the university's president, as well as the international college, the graduate school, and many other faculties. There are laboratories, classrooms, seminar rooms, libraries, computer centre, an indoor sports centre, and many other service institutes. An art gallery, the Bangkok University Gallery (BUG), opened on the campus in 2006.

Rangsit Campus

The Rangsit campus (วิทยาเขตรังสิต) is located at 9/1 5 Phahonyothin Road, Tambon Khlong Neung Amphoe Khlong Luang of Pathum Thani province. It is located approximately fourteen kilometres north of the old Bangkok International Airport, which is now used for domestic flights. The campus is approximately 265,000 m² in size. Regular students in their first and second years study here except regular Communication Arts students (not International) study on this campus for four years or their entire years.
