Collegium Novum is the main building of Jagiellonian University in Krakow and also its administrative centre. This oldest university in Poland and one of the oldest in Europe, employs nearly 500 professors and has more than 40,000 students.

The Neo-Gothic building of Collegium Novum was built in 1887 at the ring of Planty. During the office hours when it is open for students and employees, visitors can admire its interiors with paintings of great scholars and kings. Outside the building there is a plaque dedicated to the professors who were rounded up here by the Nazis on 6th November 1939 and sent to concentration camps.
