University Life

The Campus for MAIBS is in the marvellous town of Viterbo. The medieval historical centre will offer you a fabulous panorama and the peace of mind you need to focus. Clubs populated by young students, will make you feel at home no matter where you come from. Furthermore, the University offers accommodations, a sports centre, a library and students associations.

A bit of history

The historic center of the town of Viterbo is one of the best preserved medieval villages in central Italy. Many of the oldest structures (in particular the churches) are built on ancient ruins, identifiable by their large stones, 50 centimetres wide. Viterbo is rare in Italy for its concentration of “profferli”, external stairs that were a frequent characteristic of medieval houses. The San Pellegrino district is full of them, reflecting an architectural style unique to the city and the neighbouring region.

Student Activities

The University offers a sports centre, a library and students associations. 

The largest sports centre in Viterbo serving students of the University of Tuscia and offers the possibility to play over 30 different sports, is called CUS (Centro Universitario Sportivo). CUS Viterbo organises sports activities for all students and promotes the concept of physical education and leisure time activities. CUS runs the sport facilities located on the University Campuses. 

Social Life

Viterbo offers a social life composed by little clubs, pubs and typical restaurants where you can find the best Carbonara and Amatriciana in the world. People are cozy and you will always feel welcomed and supported.
