Kolpingo kolegija istakos

This year Kolping University of Applied Sciences will mark an important event – the twenty-fifth anniversary of its activity. It was established by the Lithuanian Kolping Foundation, a Catholic charity and support organization. One of the goals beyond establishment of Kolping University of Applied Sciences was to create an educational institution to develop social leaders. The second goal was to help young people perceive their personal dignity and value, to develop their confidence and, after they gain professional expertise, to help them become qualified specialists.
Kolping institutions in Lithuania are a part of the International Kolping Society that has been known for more than 150 years. The Society unites more than 500 000 members in more than 60 different countries of the world.

Kolping University of Applied Sciences invites its students to study at the building complex in the Old Town of Kaunas. In 2011, a new well-equipped building adapted for the disabled opened its doors, with a new-look library and reading room, spacious classrooms, computer classes, a conference hall equipped with modern simultaneous interpretation equipment, and a café. In the new Kolping house, it is possible to see unique cultural heritage – the stored fragments of the sixteenth century basement – one of the oldest places in Kaunas. In 2014, Kolping courtyard, a new cozy meeting space for cultural and leisure purposes, was opened. Various live music concerts, film shows are organized and other events take place in this courtyard.
