Collegium Minus in Poznan is a historic, Renaissance style edifice of German origin built on Plac Mickiewicza in Poznań’s Imperial District.
The building was erected for the needs of the Royal Academy in 1909 and designed by Edward Fürstenau. The official opening ceremony took place on 18 January 1910. It currently houses the University Hall and the vice-chancellor's office of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań together with the Small Hall (known as the Lubrański Hall)
Hanging on the central wall of the Small Hall is a copy of Jan Matejki’s painting "Założenie Akademii Lubrańskiego" (the founding of the Lubrański Academy - the original is to be found in the National Museum in Poznań). The lobby and corridors are adorned with numerous plaques and busts of distinguished personalities associated with the University and Polish culture such as Fryderyk Chopin, Heliodor Święcicki and Edward Taylor.
