The university and the student hostels are full of life. Continuous cultural events, concerts in nightclubs, sport events, and many other recreational opportunities. The university has two major campuses, both in Debrecen: the older main campus (virtual tour), which hosts the majority of the departments of the faculties of arts, science, informatics, medicine, music and also the botanical garden; and the younger "Kassai-road campus" where most of the buildings of the faculties of law and economy are located. However, besides these, numerous smaller units are spread across the city, for example the departments of physics and the Institute of Nuclear Research of the HAS forming a compact "mini-campus", or the Faculty of Agronomy.
