The Campus of Statale in MIND will cover a total of over 190,000 square metres and will accommodate more than 23,000 people including faculty, researchers and students.
Concentrating the multidisciplinary scientific expertise of the University on a single Campus in MIND, equipped with state-of-the-art research and technological infrastructures, will enhance synergies between different disciplines. It will also favour interacting with a strongly innovation-oriented ecosystem in contact with the IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi in Milan, the Human Technopole laboratories, and a network of companies structuring themselves to maximise collaboration with research facilities on prominent innovation projects.
The new university campus will open in the heart of the MIND district, at the intersection of Cardo and Decumanus. The architectural concept designed by CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati reinterprets the traditional courtyard layout of Italian and European universities, imagining a “Campus 2.0” as a space open to experimentation and contamination of scientific knowledge.
Concentrating scientific expertise. Interacting with institutions and companies. A contemporary campus as a place of exchange, reinterpreting the university tradition of the architecture of courtyards
The vocation of the Statale of Milan
The University of Milan is among the top Italian universities for scientific productivity, according to the most prestigious international rankings, and is the only Italian university to be a member of LERU (League of European Research Universities) and the 4EU+ Alliance, the university association for the establishment of a European model for teaching, research, and governance.
As a generalist university belonging to the categories of research and teaching university, the Statale of Milan distinguishes itself for its strong interdisciplinary vocation and the great variety of subject areas. The contiguity and the reciprocal methodological and cultural connection between different fields of knowledge in continuous development create a stimulating environment for study and work. Its researchers play a leading role in numerous national and international research programmes, as attested by some 450 scientific and teaching collaboration agreements. The 8 Faculties offer 141 Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, with 34 doctoral courses and 65 postgraduate schools.
