An old mansion situated at Axiothea Street, in the historic centre of Nicosia houses the Cultural Centre of the University of Cyprus.
Generously offered to the University by the State, carefully restored by the Department of Antiquities, the building serves as the home of the University's cultural activities.
Since 1997, it has housed the University's Theatre Workshop and the School of Modern Greek.
Members of the Theatre Workshop are primarily students, but other individuals, such as members of the academic and administrative staff, alumni, friends of the arts, artists, etc., can also participate.
The Workshop focuses on upgrading theatre activities within the University as well as contributing to the cultural life of Cypriot society. Theatre productions focus on Greek and Cypriot plays.
Other activities include a Cultural Festival focused on Mediterranean culture, dancing and music. The rich activity has placed the University Cultural Centre in a central position on the cultural map of Cyprus.
