Gödöllő, Páter Károly u. 1.

With the foundation of MATE Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences (former Szent István University, SZIU), one of the largest agricultural-focused, multi- disciplinary higher education institutions in Europe was established on 1 February 2021.

The backbone of the new university infrastructure is provided by our prominent campuses where our professional teaching staff and a unique green environment make the students feel welcome.

Buda, Gödöllő, Gyöngyös, Kaposvár and Keszthely Campuses offer constantly renewed degree and training programmes and make significant investments in order to strengthen their ties to international higher education.

The main campus is located in Central-Hungary, in Gödöllő, which is approx. 25 km from the capital, Budapest. The campus can be reached easily and is situated in a pleasant, green environment.

The sport centre and the recently renovated football fields provide several sport facilities to the youth.
