Studying in UNS means experiencing a unique life in Solo. Solo lies in the center of Javanese culture in Central Java. Living in Solo provides an access to witness historical remains and distinguished culture of the heritage city.

Complete facilities of the city do not eliminate the long established local identity of Javanese tones in every beat of day-to-day activities of the city.
