Central European University (CEU) with ist home campus in Budapest plans to establish a new Campus in Vienna.
Central European University (CEU) and the City of Vienna announce that they are in negotiations about a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that would enable CEU to open a satellite campus site in Vienna, complementing its home campus in Budapest and its American site at Bard College in New York State. As the largest German-speaking university city, close to CEU’s home base in Budapest, Vienna offers ideal conditions for a new site. On the basis of the MoU, the Otto Wagner area will be examined as a possible location.
"For Vienna as a university city, cooperation with the CEU offers the opportunity of the century," said Mayor Michael Häupl. “CEU is a symbol of the awakening in the Central and Eastern European EU member states, and with its social and humanities focus would complement the Viennese university landscape well,” said the Vienna Mayor with conviction. In Vienna, students and teachers find not only perfect research and study conditions, but also a high quality of life and a safe environment at affordable prices.
