The University of Zagreb is the oldest Croatian university and also the oldest university in South East Europe. The university was officially founded 23 September 1669 by Emperor and King Leopold I Habsburg who issued a decree granting the status and privileges of a university to the Jesuit Academy of the Royal Free City of Zagreb.
Year after year, the University of Zagreb welcomes an increasing number of international students into its academic community. Having in mind the importance of a tolerant and democratic international environment for students' successful learning, scientific and artistic research as well as their personal development, we strongly support and promote international mobility at our University.
University of Zagreb is in the process of building a new Campus “Borongaj” which is the biggest investment in Croatian education in the last 150 years, and when it is built (finished) it will be used by more than 20 000 students. The Campus was officially opened on October 12th 2007 and for now it hosts 4 university units: Centre for Croatian Studies, Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Traffic Engineering and Faculty of Economics and Business . Five other faculties are also planning to relocate to the Campus in the next few years. Besides the (re)construction of university buildings, Campus will be a home to a sports centre, student residence hall and a number of institutes.

My study experience was pretty great. I just have graduated from University Department of Croatian Studies. Although my Department was amazing, experience with the University of Zagreb was not so great. The head of the University and the people around him are ruining everything. They are completely incompetent to run the University and that is very clear. Anyways, I would...
