UNIMI - University of Milan

If you’re heading to Milan to study at the University of Milan, we’ve collected all you need to know about the university.

University of Milan

UNIMI (Università degli Studi di Milano) is the University of Milan. The university is one of the largest in the whole of Europe, with over 60,000 students, and is the only Italian university part of LERU, the League of European Research Universities. To avoid confusion with all the other universities in Milan, the locals usually call it Statale or just UNIMI.

As a part of LERU, the University of Milan is obviously a leading institution when it comes to the fields of research. But there’s more to university than just studies and research. UNIMI’s sports facilities are second to none and the university even has its own sports association, so you’ve got no reason to not join a sports club. Then there’s also the cultural side, which the University of Milan strongly supports with music and theatre initiatives all-year round.

The University of Milan’s strong heritage is showed in every building of the university. Most faculties are housed in historic building throughout the centre of Milan, namely the Ca’ Granda and the Palazzo Greppi, but UNIMI does also have some modern facilities in the Città Studi.

Getting to classes really depends on what building you’re heading to, but Milan has a good public transport network, so you shouldn’t have any trouble. To get to the University of Milan’s main building you just have to get the subway’s line 3 to Missori or the 16 or 24 trams to Missori, too. Alternatively, there are plenty of buses serving the centre of Milan.
