Campus life

Our campus is located right in the centre of Opole. Thus, a 12-minute walk will get you to the Old Market, 20 minutes and you are at the railway station, 5 minutes and you are watching a movie at the multi-screen cinema. If you want to swim or do shopping, no problem, a swimming pool and a shopping centre are also close by. If you are hungry and you do not feel like cooking anything by yourself visit bars, cafes or restaurants located within a walking distance from the campus. If you are tired of walking you can use a city bike and reach some beauty spots Opole is famous for.
