University of Salzburg

Multiple locations
The University of Salzburg, or Paris Lodron University (German Universität Salzburg) after its founder, the Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron, is located in the Austrian city of Salzburg, Salzburgerland, home of Mozart. It is divided into 4 faculties: catholic theology, law, humanities and natural science.

History

Founded in 1622, the university has around 18,000 students and 2,800 employees and is largest educational institution in the Land Salzburg.

Education

Since our re-establishment in 1962, the University has developed into a modern and lively institution whose four Faculties -Theology, Law, Cultural and Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences - meet the highest standards of teaching and research. Partly located in the Old City Centre and partly in the modern campus near the Salzach River, the University plays a major role in both the cultural and business lives of Salzburg.

Research

The University of Salzburg continuously produces excellent results in both basic and applied research, documented by the growing number of publications and third-party funded projects. The university’s different departments, research clusters, centres and Christian Doppler laboratories work on a multitude of research projects, many of them with an interdisciplinary approach. For the benefit of both students and young scientists, our university is guided by the principles of research-oriented teaching.

Career

The University of Salzburg is one of the largest employers in the region offering a wide range of job opportunities: apprentice, librarian, secretary, student assistant, professor, etc. Currently, approximately 2,800 people are employed by the University of Salzburg. Because the staff is the most important resource of a knowledge organization, the University particularly emphasizes the areas of inclusion, the advancement of women, and the promotion of a healthy workplace.

Student services

The core functions of the service facilities include the administration of the study programmes, the provision of IT services, the maintenance of the university buildings and all personnel and financial matters. The University Library provides access to some 2.4 million media (books, e-books, audiovisual, etc.). In addition, many other facilities such as Quality Management, Research Service, Flexible Learning, International Relations and Public Relations all make important contributions toward the success of the University.

Housing services

  • The Welcome Center will be glad to help you (newly appointed academic staff and international guest scientists) in finding accommodation. The University has three housing options available. It is recommended to reserve early. Within narrow limits the Welcome Center will also support you in your search on the private housing market. Rents in Salzburg are high and cheap housing is difficult to find in the city.
  • No accommodation service for students.

Library services

The University Library of Salzburg is the leading library of the Salzburg region, offering more than 2.4 million media to its users. The Main Library and all affiliated faculty, departmental and specialized libraries provide books, e-books, journals and e-journals, electronic databases, audiovisual material and all kinds of media including microfiche. 

Campus life

  • PLUS Green Campus is the Sustainability Initiative of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (PLUS). The objective of this project is to transform our university step by step into a "green" university that includes all aspects of university life.
  • A modern understanding of sustainability encompasses three key areas: people, nature, and economy, that together when balanced, will benefit all partners.

Sports facilities

When it comes to sport, fitness and working out, we have you covered from A to Z: The University Sport Institute (USI) and the University Fitness Centre (UFZ) offer classes ranging from acrobatics to Zumba to keep you moving.
