University departments

Three UNITUS campuses are located in the historical city centre. They are the result of remarkable restoration projects on the Church of San Carlo, the Church of Santa Maria del Paradiso, and the Dominican Convent of Santa Maria in Gradi, housing the University administrative offices. Two more campuses are located in Rieti (RI) and Civitavecchia (RM).

The six UNITUS departments are partially housed in historical buildings in town and partially in modern buildings in the outskirt. Santa Maria in Gradi, where the Rectorate is located, represents an example of efficient fusion between history and innovation.
