KUL today

At present KUL consists of seven faculties: Theology; Law, Canon Law and Administration; Philosophy; Humanities; Social Sciences; Natural and Technical Sciences; Medicine; one branch in Stalowa Wola as well as many inter-faculty units and Centers such as the College of Interdisciplinary Individual Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences or the School of the Polish Language and Culture.


KUL is constantly looking for ways to serve people and realize the mission of the university. The authorities and employees of the university are not indifferent to the new challenges brought by rapid social changes, both local and global - hence the idea of creating at KUL - the Abraham J. Heschel Center for Catholic-Jewish Relations, Study Center for Prisoners and Polonia Academy.


The University undertakes civilisation and scientific challenges of modern times performing extensive research, publishing numerous books, periodicals and encyclopedias such as the Catholic Encyclopedia and the Universal Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Studies are conducted in the Polish and English languages. Numerous facilities and special methods are used to allow studying to persons with disabilities.


Students of KUL have the opportunity to develop passions and interests in many student organizations such as choirs, theatres, or galleries. Thanks to their activity, KUL has a very rich cultural life. “KULturalia” - student’s largest cultural event is held annually. Many scientific circles found at each major of the University deal with students’ extracurricular scientific development. Moreover, students actively participate in the Academic Sports Association, in PTTK and in the Academic Legion of KUL, in which they may undergo trainings in defense. The University Chaplaincy intensively works and its activities comprise a series of initiatives, movements, communities and associations. KUL co-operates with 140 foreign universities, and is a member of many international organisations and associations such as European University Association (EUA), European Federation of Catholic Universities (EFCU) or International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU). It participates in exchange programmes and scientific co-operation thanks to which many renown scholars and people of the Church and culture from all over the world visit the University every year.

The John Paul II Catholic University in Lublin is one of the fastest growing universities in Poland. Each year the scope of scientific research and educational offer are extended. Numerous investments demonstrate the development of the University; they are designed to create optimal conditions for the development of academic staff and students.
