Student Life in Lodz


Lodz is one of the biggest Polish cities that has its own unique atmosphere. It features fine Art Nouveau architecture, a rowdy nightlife, and the most famous Polish film school. A typical visit to Łódź starts with a walk along Piotrkowska Street – one of the most famous streets in Poland and a long walking promenade with shops, cafes, restaurants. 

Manufaktura is a favorite spot for both locals and visitors. This show stopping red-brick, multi-storey shopping mall and leisure center has been brought to life thanks to an epic renovation project of former industrial textile factories. In addition to several bars, restaurants, and cafes, the complex includes a theater and cinema, the  Art Museum, and the Factory Museum, which recounts the long and interesting history of the site. The enviable list of attractions also includes a climbing wall, a bowling alley, an urban beach with deckchairs and a zip line offering a bird’s-eye view of Manufaktura for braver visitors.



The University’s campus offers housing in 10 dormitories situated in a beautiful green area reasonably close to the city center, and next to most Faculty buildings. The Campus also includes the Centre for Physical Education and Sports, which is a modern complex featuring a sports hall, swimming pool, gyms, and a health and beauty salon. Near it, you can find a medical unit, a bank, and various shops.

The University of Lodz puts great importance on its international relations. The UL cooperates with over 210 partner institutions from all over the world within institutional bilateral agreements.
