Campus life

The Town Council of the Municipality of Nova Gorica adopted a decision in May 2009, with which it allocated a lot for the needs of constructing a campus of the University of Nova Gorica. In the autumn of 2009, we have signed a letter of intent with the Municipality of Nova Gorica for the construction of a 16-hectare university campus, along the Korn stream in Nova Gorica.

The lot is located at the south edge of town, in a territory enclosed by the stream Korn and the path Streliška pot. The campus will hold all the necessary research and pedagogical infrastructure, student residence, and the accompanying activities of the University of Nova Gorica.
