Our story

Saint Ignatius College was established in 1990, after the political transition in Hungary. In 2000, the Jesuits took over the maintenance and the name of the institution changed to Saint Ignatius Jesuit College. The goal has always been the same: to create an environment in which the highly talented students not only can achieve high professional goals, but can grow up to be value-driven and socially responsible christian intellectuals. In 2011, we moved into a 100-years-old, historic building in Horánszky street, Budapest. In the very heart of the city, the College is a bastion of the jesuit centre. In the neighborhood of the Jesuit’s centre, the newly renovated building is filled with new life. Behind the preserved historic facade, the seven-floor building with its public areas (magazine reader, House of Dialogue, chapel, dining-room, 12,000 volume library, etc.) is ideal place for learning. The attic is still waiting to be built up. We have a larger common room/lounge in mind. Due to our location in the city centre, most of the universities can be reached quickly, especially by bicycle.
