The oldest part of the Kazan University building includes three classical portals along with a white facade from the original 1822 construction. This building also includes the gymnasium and the private residence of Prince Tenichev, which was granted to the university in the year of its founding. From 1832 to 1841, the architect M. Korinfsky built the rest of the buildings: the Anatomy Theater, the Library, the physics and chemistry laboratories and the observatory, which completed the university complex in a neo-classical style. The building of the Faculty of Chemistry was built by the students themselves.
