Osama's Hideouts: History Channel CGI

University Town Guest House

His guesthouse was located in University Town, a handsome suburb of quiet walled compounds , built originally by the British in the colonial era . The two-story concrete villa would set a pattern for bin Laden for the next twenty years. The villa was plush by Peshawar standards, as was every locale bin Laden occupied from then on. Bin Laden’s lifestyle, however, was simple. He shared sleeping quarters in the dormitories with the transients. He was living with many other volunteers, sleeping either on thin mattresses, or on rugs thrown on the ground.
