This majestic and vibrant city has always been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland's most important economic centres.
Whether by car, train, or plane – reaching Krakow is easy. The city is connected with the rest of Poland and Europe through an extended network of motorways, and the Kraków Airport is the second largest aerial port in Poland.
Krakow is also the place for connoisseurs of art and architecture. The Wawel Royal Castle, the Sukiennicie (Cloth Hall), former Jewish district of Kazimierz, the marvels of Stare Podgórze district, socialist realism of Nowa Huta – come study in Krakow and discover its uniqueness yourself.
A unique feature of our campus, compared to other Polish universities, is primarily the fact that the teaching and research facilities, the main offices of faculties, administration and student organisations, as well as the AGH UST Student Campus with all its clubs, sports, and recreation facilities are all located in one district of the city, creating a 40-hectare hub nestled in the heart of Krakow. It is only a 15-minute walk between the Main Building and the Krakow Main Square.
The AGH UST Campus is distinguished by its exceptionally elegant green space design. There are parking spaces for cars near the university lecture buildings. In addition, the campus has many bicycle stands and racks, as well as roofed parking spaces for bicycles.
The campus is located between the streets of Mickiewicza, Reymonta, Buszka, Tokarskiego, Armii Krajowej, Gramatyka, Nawojki, and Czarnowiejska.
