The Campus of the University of Vienna is a very special place for several reasons: on the one hand there is its history as the former General Hospital, and on the other hand there are its special architecture and its unique location.

As a part of the University of Vienna the Campus unites more than fifteen departments of the Faculty of Historical and Cultural Studies and the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies. It is not only where students and researchers work, but here they also exchange knowledge. It is a centre for business and entertaiment, for culture and art in an historical setting. Furthermore, it is a special venue for congresses, an important meeting point for students and researchers from all over the world and you will also find many Viennese visiting the local shops and restaurants or the various events taking place there.
