One of the assets of the University of Gdańsk is its relationship with the sea. The reputation of the University in marine matters is built on its excellent research stations with their international reputations: the Hel Marine Station, the Bird Migration Research Station and the Biology Station. The marine image of the university is also enhanced by its fields of study, specialisations and scientific research connected with the sea and with the Baltic coast in particular.

Among the plans for the development of the University of Gdańsk in the years 2011-2020 is the extension of the Baltic Campus of the University of Gdańsk, located in Gdańsk-Oliwa.
