The Academy of Music is located in a historic palace, which gives the place timeless charm and creates a unique atmosphere to study and perform. At the same time, the Academy modernizes and develops its infrastructure for better comfort of present and prospective students.
In October 2013, the Academy officially opened a newly-built Concert Hall with great acoustics, excellent recording and sound system equipment, a professional recording studio and broad didactic base.
At the beginning of the academic year of 2014/2015, in a close proximity of the palace, we opened a modern new building of the Regional Centre for Culture, Education and Music Documentation, which will significantly broaden educational and cultural offer of the institution. On four floors of the new building, one may find a chamber hall for 200 people, a library and sound recordings library, a recording studio, a sound laboratory, numerous practice rooms and lecture halls.
The Academy has its own student Dormitory (Hall of Residence), situated in immediate proximity of the Concert Hall at #2a Żubardzka Street. In the academic year of 2017/2018, the dormitory building was thoroughly renovated and rebuilt. Students have 24 double rooms and 12 triple rooms at their disposal, as well as shared leisure area and practice rooms. Each double room is provided with en suite kitchen and bathroom. Occupants of triple rooms have access to shared kitchen facilities and high-standard bathrooms on the same floor. All rooms are equipped with a free internet connection. Modern reception desk, laundry and drying room are located on the ground floor. The reception desk, surveillance system of the whole building and multilingual staff working 24/7 ensure protection against potential intruders. The interior of the building is disabled-friendly (no doorsteps).
