The 27th International Congress of Papyrology will be hosted by the University of Warsaw. The University Campus is located in the city centre, in the proximity of the Old Town, and is easily accessible by public transport. Established in 1816, the University of Warsaw is Poland's largest and finest university. From its beginning it has played a major role in the intellectual, political and cultural life of Poland, and has been recognized throughout the world as a leading academic centre in this part of Europe. Today UW employs over 6,200 people, including 3,240 academic teachers and educates almost 53,700 undergraduate and graduate students. Each year over 20,000 young people enroll as students at the University. Their interest in studying at UW results above all from the University's prestige, something UW has earned through the high level of education it offers and the quality of research work it generates.

The Congress will take place at the old University library, the Collegium Novum, located at the heart of the University Campus. In 1999 the library collections were moved to a new building on Dobra St. and Collegium Novum was completely restored and modernized. The venue now boasts modern auditoria and conference rooms fully equipped with audio-visual facilities. At the disposal of the Congress participants will be 8 conference rooms seating up to 50 persons (convertible into 4 rooms seating 100 persons), as well as a spacious auditorium for up to 300 persons.
