Excellent teaching, excellent research, and high-quality service place focus on the individual, as the pillars of a modern, future-oriented university.

Our university teaches its students to seize the world’s opportunities and not to be frightened to confront them and put themselves out there. It is an inclusive university that shares, respects and protects diversity, as one of its main values.

Bicocca is a leader in local and international cultural development.

Campus Features

The Milan campus

The Bicocca campus is located in the Milanese district of the same name, which was once home to large industrial companies such as Pirelli and Breda. The new university became part of a large-scale redevelopment project launched around 1986 and coordinated by the architect Vittorio Gregotti. The 21 buildings occupied by the university are all located in the Bicocca district, with the exception of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, which is located next to the San Gerardo university hospital in Monza.

At the Bicocca Hub, redevelopment and expansion work was completed on Building U9, which is home to laboratories used for specific inter-departmental research activities as well as the university’s Multimedia Production Centre and an inter-faculty teaching sector.

Building U14 – located in the former Breda complex – was finalised, with a total surface area of 4500 square metres, and is home to the Department of Informatics, Systems and Communication. In front of this building, the university acquired a similar structure, together with some attached industrial warehouses, which need to be restructured in order to be used for university business as well as spin-off initiatives and start-ups, particularly those associated with biotechnology and pharmaceuticals companies who wish to open premises in the Bicocca area.
