The Mario Luzzatto Student House, the new university residence of Humanitas University, was presented on Friday 7 September. The university thus enriches its educational model based on the integration of teaching, research and clinical activities, in addition to the reception for students, which also sees the provision of training services and support for study, such as language courses and recreational activities.
The new residence will be managed by Camplus, the first housing provider for university students in Italy, which today manages about 8,000 beds throughout the country.
An innovative proposal that enhances the international context of Humanitas University also thanks to Camplus, a partner with solid experience in the management of university residences developed with Camplus College, the network of colleges of merit of the CEUR Foundation recognized and accredited by the Ministry of Education, University and Research.
The new Student House
The Mario Luzzatto Student House, in via Rita Levi Montalcini 4 in Pieve Emanuele, is dedicated to Mario Luzzatto, internationally renowned manager, artist and philanthropist, and it is located in the new Campus opened in 2017 by President Sergio Mattarella, in an area of 20,000 square meters connected to the center of Milan.
The house has 240 beds, in accommodation with single or double rooms, which will be available in October with the beginning of the academic year. Workshops, study rooms, gym, relaxation room, library, terrace, garden, cafeteria, and laundry: many common areas where you can network and share your life as a student. Additional services include orientation and tutoring meetings, cultural and recreational initiatives. 17 million euros for the investment in land and structure built in a record time of one year.
In the management of the residence, Camplus will also provide students with services with high added value such as training courses and entertainment events, able to accompany and support university students during their study period.
“Becoming a Life Sciences professional today – explains Giorgio Ferrari, Managing Director of Humanitas University – means moving in an international context. With the Campus, our University, which has immediately exerted a strong attraction towards foreign students, can promote integration among the professionals of tomorrow with moments of meeting and exchange between young people of different cultures to build new and wide-ranging relationships.
“In managing this important structure – comments Maurizio Carvelli, Founder and CEO of Camplus – we can provide students with our philosophy of hospitality and education, the result of experience gained over the past thirty years, capable of interpreting the current needs of university students. In our residences we offer students high level residential services and numerous educational opportunities in addition to studies, such as language courses, internationalization and community activities, profession orientation through meetings with company executives, professionals and researchers. All under the guidance of a direction that supports each student in his choices through continuous opportunities for discussion, accompanying him in one of the most important periods of his life.
The entrance test to Medicine
Moreover, on Friday 7 September, 1500 students (+26% compared to 2017) took the IMAT – International Medical Admissions Test – entry test in English for the 100 places available in the International Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery at Humanitas University. The 50 places dedicated to young people from outside Europe, who took the test in April, have already been assigned. In 2018 the international component grew: 17% of foreigners attending the test (of which 5% from the United Kingdom, 4% from Germany, 2% from Switzerland), which potentially will be added to the non-European students who have been assigned 50 places. The percentage of international students at Humanitas University is currently 44%, mainly from Great Britain, the United States, India, Iran, Canada, Germany, Greece and Taiwan.
The IMAT test was held simultaneously at the Assago Forum and in 16 other cities around the world.
The evening before the test, the doors of the new Campus opened for the young people registered for the entry test. A special occasion for a preview of the new structure of the Campus.
