The University is one of the main reference points for the city of Messina, the 13th city in Italy for size (with 240,000 inhabitants), known as the “gateway to Sicily”. Stretched out on the sea, the city and its area (with international heritage sites such as Taormina) offer many attractions, so that Messina is today one of the country’s leading cruise ship ports.
UniME students represent more than 10% of the urban population.
Many of them come from other provinces and regions or from abroad. Experiencing the University of Messina also means experiencing the town as a citizen. For this purpose, the university organizes several events and student groups meet in clubs at night to have fun together. Stay tuned!
