Jesuit University Ignatianum in Cracow is a Catholic higher education institution with state
rights run by Jesuits. It is one of two hundred Jesuit universities in the world.
The University is located in the very centre of Cracow in a modern building adapted for the needs of the disabled. A 10-minute walk is enough to reach the main railway station or the Main Market Square.
Apart from traditional classrooms, lecture rooms and a computer lab, the university also houses a special bio-medical room (for use by pedagogy, social work and psychology students) as well as a multimedia language room. This year additional special rooms for journalism students will be added: a newsroom and a media centre.
Almost all University premises are covered by the wireless network that can be used by the students and staff.
The Jesuit Priests Library is also available for the students. It belongs to the Federation of the Church Libraries FIDES.
Catering facilities are provided by the Veni Café located in the main building.
