The university was the last one which was founded in the entire Habsburg empire 127 years ago. A part of it is still in the original buildings but the main seat of it is now the former Residence of the Orthodox Metropolite of the Bukovina and Dalmatia. It is a fascinating eclectic mix of different styles, in parts reminding of an Oxford College, in others a Byzantine palace. It was designed by the Czech architect Hlavka.
