Visit Università IULM

Following the model of American campuses, the IULM University is a very modern complex, technologically advanced and equipped with structures designed to give space to study activities but also to moments of aggregation. Over the years, new buildings have been built around the central building to house classrooms, research centers, laboratories, a university bookshop, a restaurant and a student residence. In 2016, IULM University expanded its spaces: in addition to the IULM Open Space building (IULM 6), which includes two auditoriums and an important exhibition space with which the University strengthens its vocation as a multipurpose cultural center for the city of Milan, the Milanese campus was enriched with Cascina Moncucco, an important residential project of urban renovation for students of the University.
