SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities was established in 1996. It is the first private university in Poland.The University has been ranked by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education as the leading higher education institution offering Social Sciences programs in Poland.

Since its inception, SWPS University has been dedicated to teaching and research. SWPS helps students realize their full potential and prepare them to meet the demands of the contemporary world.

SWPS University, housed in the historic building of the High Voltage Apparatus and Devices Factory built in the 1920s, is located in the Praga District of Warsaw. Praga is one of the most iconic parts of the city. It is an area with rich history of working class neighbourhoods, big manufacturing companies and industrial architecture. It is famous for its adversity-defying character, pride, and artistic flair.

The 25,000 m2 modern campus of SWPS University includes carefully renovated historical industrial buildings, which have been adapted to the current needs of the best private university in Poland. The campus offers spacious classrooms and lecture theatres, computer labs, simultaneous interpretation laboratory, and research laboratories with specialized equipment. Additionally, the campus houses the university’s extensive library and a unique East Asia Collection that hold a variety of books, periodicals, audio-visual and study materials.



Warsaw University of Social Sciences and Humanities is located in the heart of Praga district. This district is located on the left side of Vistula river. Nevertheless, there is an easy access to public transportation that will take you wherever you need.

Through the centuries, Warsaw’s right-bank – the area called Praga – was an independent town, and it became formally attached to Warsaw only in the late 18th century. For years it was a secondary part of the city that survived the devastation of war, with three different religions (Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Judaism) peacefully co-existing. Today it is a fascinating district, overflowing with artistic studios, galleries, alternative theaters and underground clubs. Thanks to this infusion of cool culture, many of the surviving post-industrial buildings have been turned into cultural centres, cinemas, galleries and pubs.
