University of Warsaw Campuses

UW buildings are clustered in three parts of Warsaw:


Śródmieście (central Warsaw)

the main campus in Krakowskie Przedmieście Street, part of the city’s flagship Royal Route, right next to the residence of the President of Poland. The campus itself and its vicinity house mainly faculties of humanities and social sciences, the UW authorities and central administration offices.


The campus is situated in the historic part of Warsaw, which is why access by car is limited. It is safest to choose public transport. The “Uniwersytet” stop is serviced by the following buses: 102, 105, 111, 116, 128, 175, 180, 222, 503, 518, E-2.


The campus is 15 minutes away from the nearest “Świętokrzyska” metro station. The “Nowy Świat – Uniwersytet” station on the second metro line (east-west, currently under construction) will be located even closer to UW – right next to one of the University buildings.


Nearby, there are two docking stations where you can hire a city bike and others in Dobra Street – at the rear of the Warsaw University Library and next to the new Linguistics Building.


Ochota (central Warsaw)

in the area outlined by Żwirki i Wigury, Wawelska, Grójecka and Banacha Streets, there are science and natural science faculties and research units. When travelling by bus, you should get off at the “Banacha-Szpital” (Hospital) stop. You can get here by bus services 128, 136, 175, 188 and 504.


Służewiec (southern Warsaw)

has the Faculty of Management and some Faculty of Applied Linguistics buildings. You can take bus service 174 from the “Orzycka” stop every 15 minutes to the city centre.
