“WE WILL BUILD A SUSTAINABLE AND HIGH-TECH ESET CAMPUS TO BECOME A HUB OF TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION THAT CAN SECURE ESET’S PROSPERITY OVER GENERATIONS AND SUPPORT SLOVAKIA’S SHIFT TO KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY BY ATTRACTING, RETAINING AND DEVELOPING TALENTED PEOPLE IN ITS INSPIRING ECOSYSTEM THAT REPRESENTS ESET‘S VALUES.”
ESET plans to create an ESET Campus on the site of the former Military Hospital - a lively place that will turn this part of Bratislava into an epicenter of innovation and creativity. In addition to ESET’s new headquarters and global research center, the campus will create a quality and stimulating environment for IT and technology companies and startups, connecting them with technically oriented universities
In addition to a quality background for innovation and research, the campus will provide a wide range of other useful services and facilities, quality public spaces and, in part, residential premises. Other important parts of the campus will include sports facilities and an auditorium.
Seeking to support the use of public transport and provide maximum comfort for pedestrians as much as possible, the ESET CAMPUS will be built on the principles of functionality, sustainability and ecology. . Designed to blend with the popular forest park area of Železná Studnička, the project will allow the general public to take advantage of a number of shared services.

ESET Campus will be designed by the world-renowned architectural studio Bjarke Ingels Group – BIG. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Not least due to the influence from multicultural exchange, global economic flows and communication technologies that all together require new ways of architectural and urban organization.
„We are honoured to work with ESET, which has set out an extraordinary level of ambition for their new headquarters. The vision is to demonstrate a true carbon neutral approach to construction, and to create a campus blended closely with the natural environment at the foot of the small Carpathians,“
said Andreas Klok Pedersen, Partner BIG London.
