After the oblivion crisis, the Mages Guild disbanded and divided to The Synod and The College Of Whispers. What happened to the Arcane University? Who's occupying it?
If thats so, then the University either:
1. Is being used for imperial events or housing.
2. Loyal members of the mages guild/arcane university kept it together.
3. Its vacant, waiting to be used again by the imperial city.
While nobody knows right now, if we can get back to Cyrodil in, say, a new open world TES game, we'll find out.
maybe the guild will be restored in tes 6. also if that happens a pratoganist will be their first archimage.
What do you think?
