Gdynia Maritime University

The first Polish Maritime University was located in Tczew. However, the development of the country's "window to the world" prompted its transfer to Gdynia at the end of the 1920s.

Naval Academy

The construction of this great complex of schools, workshops and dorms for students and lecturers took place between 1926 and 1930 and was based on a design by Wacław Tomaszewski. In its first academic year – 1930/1931 – the University operated in an uncompleted building. After World War II the school was immediately put back into operation.

In 1969 the National Sea School and the National School of Marine Fishing combined to create the Gdynia Maritime School.

At the time, the school provided education within four faculties: Navigation, Marine Engineering, Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Administration and Economy.

The year 2002 saw the name change to the Gdynia Maritime University. The imposing complex of its academic buildings is a truly fascinating example of modernism in Gdynia.

The Gdynia Maritime University

On 1st September 2018, under the Regulation of the Minister for Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation, the Academy became the Gdynia Maritime University. The change followed the attainment of the right to award doctoral degrees and its compliance with the requirements for university status.
