Free shuttle service

Equipped gym and outdoor sports fields

Our extra-curricular and sports facilities take advantage of the opportunities offered by the marvellous natural surroundings of the university. These green spaces and our fully equipped gym make the campus an ideal place for anyone who favours the idea of "mens sana in corpore sano".

6 hectare green park

The Campus of Unicusano is next door to the Monte Mario Nature Reserve, and also surrounded by a large swathe of parkland (six hectares of grounds) which is used by our students as a green space in which to relax, filled with pine and fir trees, as well as the olive grove and organic vegetable garden that supply our 'green' campus canteen.

Tutoring and services

Throughout our students' entire course of study, they can rely on the continual assistance of their Tutors. The Tutor is an expert guide who helps students to plan their studies and deals with administrative questions, and gives them psychological support until they take their degree. The Tutor works in close contacts with the students and he aims at creating a collaborative environment by providing direct support for the student both on line and in "face to face" situations. The Tutor acts as a consultant and guide who "plans" the students' learning experience. His tasks include: to identify study problems and finding eventual solutions; to instill specific study skills and improving learning capacity; to give objective and constructive feedback on the results of the learning process; to instill a spirit of cooperation among students (functioning in this way as a mediator).

Library

Our reading rooms on campus are spaces set aside for self-study, where students can do research by wi-fi connection or by consulting the wide variety of reading material available in the university library; They are also spaces where students can interact with one another and exchange ideas and knowledge.
