Welcome to the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg!

Vizerektorin für Internationale Beziehungen und Kommunikation: ao. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sylvia Hahn

Dear Students,

We are very happy that you have chosen our university for your international or Erasmus exchange year. The University of Salzburg is both a very old, and at the same time, a very new and modern university. It was first founded in 1622 as a Catholic Benedictine University by the former Arch-bishop of Salzburg, Paris Lodron, who was born in the small northern Italian city of Rovereto. At the beginning of the 19th century, the university was closed down during the Napoleonic Wars and was not reopened afterwards, when Salzburg became part of the Austrian Empire. The University was only re-established as a public university in 1962.  It expanded continuously during the following decades and is now a major institution. Today the University of Salzburg consists of four faculties with nearly 2.800 employees and approximately 18.000 students. One remarkable aspect of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg is that its many different buildings are spread out all over the old part of the city, in the green areas of Nonntal and Freisaal and even on the Mönchsberg.  Some of the buildings date back to the time of the original founding of the University of Salzburg in the 17th century, while others are newly built with modern designs; however, all are provided with up-to-date facilities for teaching, learning and research. I hope that you will have an interesting and enjoyable stay here in Salzburg and I wish you all the best and a wonderful time at our university!
