NBU campus

The suburban campus of NBU combines features of an urban and rural campus. It is located outside the big city, which allows you to focus on your studies. However, it is also not too far, opening up access to more types of recreation, both outdoors and in the city (theaters, museums, restaurants). The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. Foreigners who come to NBU through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
