The University of Milano-Bicocca
In 1998, the premises of the old Pirelli factory were turned into a state-of-the-art complex encompassing modern research laboratories, expansive study areas and communal areas for students.
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 coordinated by the architect Vittorio Gregotti. The 28 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.
The two poles in Milan and Monza are organised into large spaces where teaching, research and services facilities are integrated: technologically advanced lecture theatres, study rooms, research centres, teaching, computer and research laboratories, libraries.
Support services are integrated with the neighbourhood and include canteens, bars, residences, auditoriums, gyms, the Bicocca Stadium, and parking.
