USI Summer Campus 2022, 11-23 July 2022


USI Summer Campus 2022

USI Summer Campus was born last academic year from a students’ initiative for a summer gathering on campus to boost student life after an academic year still marked by restrictions.

After its success in 2021, USI has the great pleasure to launch USI Summer Campus 2022, featuring a lineup of new initiatives and collaborations.

The two-week programme is aimed at USI students enrolled in the AA 2021-22 and future students wishing to gain academic training as well as to take part in sports and cultural activities in a friendly and lively environment.

Moreover, it is aimed at students enrolled in other universities who would like to discover USI and the Lugano region, seizing the opportunities of a university on a personal scale, where everyone can cultivate their uniqueness through encounter and dialogue.
