Mission and activities
WHO WE ARE
Fondazione Collegio delle Università Milanesi is a non-profit institution supported by seven universities and important public and private entities of the city of Milan, aiming at being a point of reference within the academic, institutional and entrepreneurial contexts of Italy and Europe.
The Foundation’s activities are focused on spreading and promoting the “college experience”, on valorizing a meritocratic culture, the internationalization of the university system, and the integration of local entities. Through its study of the dynamics of temporary accommodation within multicultural contexts, it also presents itself as a force for social mobility and active citizenship.
The Foundation manages the Collegio di Milano, an inter-university campus recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research involving all the universities of Milan, and the Expo College, an accommodation network for young people from all over the world.
