Anyone who studies in Udine not only has the advantage of a series of dedicated services (laboratories on study methods and anxiety management, mindfulness laboratories, virtual desks/windows on Facebook, libraries, Wi-Fi, canteens) but can also have experiences that will make his/her time in Udine unique. Music-lovers can supplement their University training at the local Conservatory (Conservatorio statale di musica Jacopo Tomadini).
Although Udine is a small city with about 100,000 inhabitants, it offers all those opportunities typical of bigger centers: traditional “osterie” (eateries), pubs, wine bars, cafes, restaurants, pizzerias, theaters, cinemas, discos, museums, and shopping malls among the biggest in Europe.
Udine was the third city in the world, after Milan and London, to have a street lighting system; today it is completely equipped with a fiber-optic rapid connection network.
The bike sharing system is also extremely efficient.
The biggest attraction is the city itself with its cultural offerings, thanks to a wide range of museums, sites, monuments, churches, parks, theatres and events which take place all year round. More than two thousand years of history have contributed to build up this incredible heritage: from the Roman Empire, through the Middle Ages, the Savoy court, becoming the first capital of Italy in 1861 over the Risorgimento, to being the capital of Italian industrial production over the 20th century with FIAT.
Turin’s exciting lifestyle is particularly appreciated by young people and students, willing to pursue their academic careers in this city. Over the last years, great work has been done to improve the services of the city to the student community. From a brand new campus, to a higher number of study rooms and housing options, to transportation and student-friendly policies, Turin is now a very much student-oriented city.
