Places to study

On the University’s premises we constantly work to create more places to study. Places where students can sit and study focused, individually or in groups. But also places for relaxation, socializing or reflection. On the Frescati and Albano campuses there are a total of over 3,000 places to study.

NOTE! The opening hours vary for the premises where the study places are located.
