Extraordinary living & learning experience
Study in a former prison.
The terrain of the former Cupola prison is transformed into a university campus: a modern and cutting edge learning environment with classrooms, lab facilities, work – and meeting areas, a start-up incubator, a film theatre, and a Cupola Café- in an iconic historical monument.
The proximity to the city center and the green lung around the cupola, equipped with sunny terraces, 240 student studios, a supermarket, and a “green mobility” hub complements the ecosystem of the building and invites students to linger and explore.
You will feel energized by stepping into a historical building transformed into a think tank full of innovators, researchers, and forward thinkers who get together to create future-forming ideas.
