The university of Warsaw occupies a central location and several ancient buildings as well as more recent ones. A stroll across the premises of the university is almost a must have.

I walked around this campus which is lovely and centrally located. There's great buildings and grounds and lots of fun activities going on while I was there including a hot air balloon display. Lovely spot for a stroll.

The university is in the location of the Novy Swiat which is where many monuments and commemorative sculptures exist. There are historical buildings but most of these are replicas of the originals since 85 percent of Warsaw was destroyed by the Nazi's during a WWII occupation. We spent a few minutes walking around the gardens and looking at the architecture... More

You don't get to see everyday that such big campus have such a great location. Great entry with park. Truly a symbol of how important education was to the people who planned it and build it.

The university has some great buildings. It adds to the liveliness of the Old Town - a great asset. Just walk through. No one bothers you.

This review is "biased" because I am a graduate of Warsaw University. It is always a sentimental journey to visit it again. The historic buildings are now beautifully renovated and the University is an integral part of Warsaw's most beautiful and prestigious street: Krakowskie Przedmiescie. I am submitting this review just to post a few of photos! I would encourage... More

This is an old university located in the Nowy Swiat area. Very good architecture. Big campus and full of youths.

I have to be careful here as I do not know the precise name of the University residence. Overall, be careful, even if facilities are offered prior to arrival, it may not turn out that way eg. laundry. Also don't be surprised if the staff are not friendly (some of the student residents were more helpful than the paid staff)... More

The University covers a fairly large area alongside the Nowy Swiat in Warsaw, south of the Old Town. The university consists of many buildings and the architecture of the buildings is worth a look.

We only had a look from the outside but the entrance to the University is just beautiful and in the middle of the Krakowskie Przdemiescle.
