College Italia 

The Project was launched in 2008 in partnership with the Politecnico di Bari and the Universities of Brescia, Cassino, Perugia and Molise, and involved the purchase of the building located in New York, 225 Rector Place. The building is intended to accommodate the students of the partner universities who, as part of the above-mentioned Project, participate in joint international academic training programmes with prestigious American universities.

The 'College Italia' is centrally and strategically located in relation to the surrounding universities (including Pace, Columbia University and NYU-Poly with which Sapienza has signed agreements) and consists of 15 flats.

Sapienza is entrusted with the management of the administrative aspects and in general with carrying out and/or coordinating all activities aimed at ensuring the proper functioning of the building units.


Sapienza guesthouses

The Unit deals with the administrative and accounting aspects of Sapienza's guesthouses, follows the management service contract and verifies the legitimacy of requests for reservations for rooms and multi-purpose rooms.

Sapienza owns two guesthouses, one located on Via Volturno no. 42, the other on Via Nomentana no. 118, in the Villa Mirafiori complex, and are intended to host professors, researchers, students, and technical-administrative staff invited by a Sapienza structure for its institutional activities, conferences, seminars or research activities.
