LUMSA is in the centre of Rome, the world capital of culture and art. Its location at the heart of the eternal city gives students a unique university experience within easy reach of all the artistic treasures and sights that attract tourists from all over the world on a daily basis, such as Piazza San Pietro, Castel Sant'Angelo, the Leonine City and the Borgo district.
Since 1984 the Santa Silvia School of Social Services in Palermo has been incorporated into LUMSA, and has now become the local centre for social science courses. Since 1999, the University has also been operating a local centre in Via Filippo Parlatore in Palermo. The central location allows students easy access to the offices and lecture halls by means of public transport (bus, metro, and tram).
The Taranto centre has been open since 1997 and is home to degree courses in the non-profit and social service sectors. The Piazza Santa Rita branch in the city centre operates in collaboration with EDAS (Diocesan Institute for Social Apostolate).
