The university's faculties of philosophy and theology date back more than 400 years. Eichstaett became a state-recognized university in 1980, but retained its independent status as a Catholic university open to students of all faiths. An attractive feature is its personal atmosphere: students, professors and administration officials at Eichstaett enjoy a closer relationship than is typical at many German universities.

Eichstätt is situated in the middle of Bavaria, 70 miles north of Munich, an area of rolling hills and valleys which has been designated a national park. The creations in baroque style by architects such as Jakob Engel, Gabriel di Gabrieli and Maurizio Pedetti have helped give the city a reputation as one of the most beautiful in Bavaria. The central university administration is housed in the former summer residence of the bishops. The newer buildings of the university are situated around the garden of the summer residence and on the bank of the river Altmuhl.
