Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore


Milan Campus

A city within a city

8 Faculties, 19 departments, 9 institutes, 42 research centres and 9 residential colleges, for a total of 30,000 students

A cosmopolitan, multicultural environment is set around the two main cloisters of the historic Saint Ambrose monastery designed by Bramante. The heart of Università Cattolica is located here, in Largo Gemelli. The historic seat of the university is a campus in the city centre, serving more than 30,000 students; it is a setting which unites tradition and modernity, rigor and creativity, excellence and innovation.

The campus, one of the most prestigious architectural complexes in Milan, is located in what was a Cistercian monastery adjacent to the Basilica of Saint Ambrose. The two cloisters, with the adjoining, early 20th century facade designed by Giovanni Muzio, have become the symbol of the university.

But the Milan campus of Università Cattolica is much more than this. It is an extensive campus, almost a university town, with different hubs throughout the heart of the city, where it is possible to partake in lively interdisciplinary, educational and cultural debate.
