Kollegienkirche, or University Church, is the church of the University of Salzburg, Austria. The university itself has no campus. It occupies various buildings within the Old Town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Kollegienkirche is located next to the university library. It is one of the earliest projects by Austria's most influential architect of the Baroque period, Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (1656-1723). The altar of the church was created by Austrian painter Johann Michael Rottmayr (1656-1730).
