The University Library
was officially established in September 1945, a fortnight after the establishment of NCU. Apart from 1000,000 books and almost 500,000 periodicals and regular publications, the Library has some 500,000 special items including 48,000 old prints (213 incunabulas) and 4,100 manuscripts. It also has valuable collections of drawings, charts, musical scores and other documents of social life. The total number of items amounts to over 2.5 million and places the University Library in Toruń amongst the largest in Poland. The collection of old books contains many scientific and literary works, including a collection of all the editions of the works of University's patron Nicolaus Copernicus. Among others it has the first and third edition of De revolutionibus orbium coelestium.
Foreign Languages Centre
Our mission is to provide dependable and professional language education to students of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń at the levels defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment. To support that mission, we employ diverse forms of learning which comply with today’s educational standards and Council of Europe recommendations, and which address the needs of the University and the labour market. The Centre provides an environment that fosters the teaching and learning of foreign languages for academic and professional purposes. It promotes multilingualism and multiculturalism, facilitating our graduates’ future employment and professional mobility within both the university education sphere and the international job market.
The main goals of the Foreign Languages Centre are to:
University Sports Centre
provides students with a wide range of sport activities such as basketball, volleyball, aerobics, yoga, steam gym, swimming, judo, aikido, and cycling. Students may also play tennis at NCU Tennis courts or attend horse riding lessons. It is important to notice that the number of students admitted to each class is limited and that priority is given to those who have PE (Physical Education) obligatory in their curriculum.
The Od Nowa Club
is the most well-known students' club in Toruń. It is the organiser of almost all student cultural events. Various musical concerts take place there, including weekly jazz meetings. Od Nowa often features well-known popular performers, including foreign bands, representing various musical styles. It also houses Gallery 011 where students of Fine Arts present their works.
