The emblem of the Bicocca University is an octahedron inspired by the “De Divina Proportione” by Luca Pacioli and still represents the multidisciplinary nature of this University.
The University of Milano-Bicocca is easily reachable by train thanks to the Greco Pirelli railway station, which is located just 10 minutes away from the Central Station and Lambrate, and from which also direct trains depart to Monza, Lecco and Bergamo.
Thanks to the Bicocca stop, underground lovers can also use the lilac M5 line. Alternatively, it is possible to reach the faculty by tram 7, which connects Piazzale Lagosta – the centre of the nightlife of the Isola district – to Via Fulvio Testi road.
The University of Milano-Bicocca is the most recent University in the city and it is located on the iconic Pirelli factory complex.
Its foundation helped to accelerate the real estate engine of the Bicocca district, giving rise to new activities such as the famous shopping center Bicocca Village.
The urban redevelopment of this area has led to a great availability of houses and apartments for rent near the University Bicocca, with services and competitive prices, compared to the rest of Milan.
