About us: Pécs, University, Faculty
Pécs is the fifth largest town in Hungary with a population of about 158,000. It lies in the South-East of Transdanubia at the southern foot of the Mecsek Hills. Besides its outstanding regional role, the town is also Hungary’s gateway to Croatia, the Balkans and the North-Italian region. The vicinity of the Adriatic Sea, the town’s Mediterranean-type climate, the picturesque streets of its historical centre and the teeming summer evenings all evoke the atmosphere of Mediterranean countries.
Pécs is a beautiful place to study; you can be sure that you will find everything a student may wish for.

The Faculty buildings are located in one block on a single campus. The buildings of the Faculty have been renovated with great care, preserving architectural authenticity and the patina of by-gone eras, and on the other hand, they have also been prepared for the technical challenges of the future. Students’ stay at the university is rendered more convenient and enjoyable by air-conditioned lecture halls designed by interior designers, pleasant student areas, a canteen, buffet, café and vending machines located in the corridors.
Apart from the major outstanding events, every Wednesday there is a “Law Students’ Party” in the Amper Club, one of the city’s most exclusive and high standard places of entertainment. On such occasions, those going out will be welcomed from 10.00 p.m. by our “regular” DJs, drink discounts and several hundreds of law students.
