University buildings downtown

A high standard of education demands a pleasant environment.


The University of Szeged does not have a campus, but in place of that it has a unique charm. In the city centre and across the river, old, eclectic or modern university buildings are to be found around every corner. Our educational, study and meeting point is the University of Szeged József Attila Study and Information Centre, a multiple architectural prize winner, included among the ten most beautiful libraries in the world. This is where the “heart of the university beats”. Besides the construction of this outstanding glass building, a number of development projects have led to the renewal of several university buildings.

SZTE Experience

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.
