Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw (Polish: Uniwersytet Kardynała Stefana Wyszyńskiego w Warszawie) is a state university in Warsaw. It was founded in 1999, and it is named after Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński of Poland.[3] It offers religious studies at the faculties of theology, Canon law and Christian philosophy under the patronage of Archbishop of Warsaw issuing permits (missio canonica) to academic staff at those faculties. The secular studies with particular sensitivity to Christian values fall under the Ministry of Education.[4]


The university traces its history to Warsaw Theological Academy (Akademia Teologii Katolickiej), created by the Polish communist government after it had closed down the theology departments at University of Warsaw and Jagiellonian University. The academy did not receive full acceptance from Roman Catholic Church in Poland until the fall of communism in 1989 removed state control over the institution. In 1999 the academy was transformed into the current university.

The university consists of two main campuses in Warsaw's northern districts. The old one at Bielany and the new one at Mlociny, which mostly houses arts and humanities faculties.
