The University of Milan-Bicocca (UNIMIB) is a public University located in Milan, and established in 1998.
The University is located in an area on the northern outskirts of Milan, which was occupied by the Pirelli industrial complex until the late 1980s. The industrial area has been subject to a major renovation project that led to the construction of important facilities.
In 1998 the old buildings of the Pirelli factory were turned into a state of the art complex including: extremely modern research laboratories, big study areas and common areas for students.
The location of the main buildings in the northeast of the city and its proximity to the Greco Pirelli railway station make the Bicocca district highly accessible.
