Campus history

The very first unit was located in Via Marconi, built in the 1930s as a nursing home for former employees of the company Dalmine who had been declared unfit for work. It is annexed to a small hospital. The project was designed by architect Giovanni Greppi: a three-storey building with a curved glass corner wall for the internal staircase, a trabeated portico and side driveway. The proposed destination was not as successful as expected, so the management transformed the building into a heliotherapy colony and during the Second World War some of the interiors were used as lodgings for officers, the Industrial Technical School and for other educational purposes, until it became the headquarters of the Esperia. The University was established at the end of the nineties, including laboratories, a main hall with 900 seats, a cafeteria, classrooms and offices created by converting warehouses, a mechanical workshop, an infirmary, and a cycle depot respectively. The latter features a brick façade, and, in addition to the bicycles, it will also host cars.
