schools' environment

I'm trying to select some good places for study. One of more important criteria is that a school stands apart from the city. Nevertheless, it can be in a big city. But it must be an integrity, which means that it's surrounded by beautiful gardens, parks, libraries, sport centres,... Buildings must not be scattered around a city. The whole place must be integrated. Do you have any idea how these things go with Harvard, UChicago, MIT, Northwestern, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, NY, Columbia, Cornell, CMU, Duke, LSE...??</p>

<p>I'd rule out NYU based on what you're looking for - definitely doesn't have a centralized campus - NY IS the campus.</p>
