USI Università della Svizzera italiana

Via G. Buffi 13 Lugano View map

Overview

USI Università della Svizzera italiana is one of the 12 certified public universities in Switzerland, coordinated by Swissuniversities. USI is organised in five faculties and is active in several study and research areas: architecture, communication sciences, computational sciences, data science, economics, health studies, humanities, informatics, law, medicine and biomedicine.

USI is a Young and lively university, a hub of opportunity open to the world where students are offered a quality interdisciplinary education in which they can be fully engaged and take centre stage, and where our researchers can count on having the space to freely pursue their initiative.

Around 2800 students and about 800 professors and researchers, hailing from over 100 countries, convene every day on the three campuses in Lugano, Mendrisio and Bellinzona.

The relative small size of the campuses encourages the free flow and open exchange of ideas within the academic community. USI encourages faculty, students and researchers to develop their potential, and appreciates their curiosity and willingness to experiment with new ways of teaching, thinking, and working.

Established in 1996, USI is in constant evolution, always taking on new challenges while remaining true to its three guiding principles: quality, openness and responsability.
