Our home in Venice


Our beautiful new home in the heart of historic Venice will benefit thousands of students, researchers and partners from all over the world.

Overlooking the Grand Canal, the space within the Palazzo Giustinian Lolin building, will be used as an all-year round centre for seminars, summer schools and degree modules.


Our history in Venice

We first opened a base in Venice in 1967 and Warwick is believed to be one of the only universities in the world to have a permanent base in the city.

Dating back to the 17th century, the baroque-style building, will provide a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the history, art and culture of this amazing city.

Our famous ‘Venice’ term allows history and history of art students to study the Renaissance in situ – to see the Renaissance come alive in the buildings and artworks of Venice, led by world class teachers and experts.

The unique programme has been a hugely important experience for many generations of Warwick students and underlines our deep commitment to the arts and international collaboration.

We hope Palazzo Giustinian Lolin will be used by partners, researchers and other disciplines over the coming years – so that it become a space for the whole university to benefit from.

Global citizen

Warwick has always been an outward looking, global university, and it’s vital we continue to build strong partnerships both internationally and within Europe to boost learning, research and provide opportunities for our students and staff.

We’re proud to be a member of the EUTOPIA European University alliance, which brings together 10 European universities aiming to become, by 2030, an open, multicultural, confederated operation of connected campuses.

We already work closely with Ca’Foscari (University of Venice), one of the EUTOPIA partners, and our base will help us further strengthen our education and research work with them.

Warwick also has partnerships with Monash, in Australia, and works closely with a number of universities in Africa, North America and Asia.
