Majors

Tuscany Campus, Prato Italy

academic spotlight

The University of New Haven opened its first international satellite campus in Prato, Italy in the fall of 2012. When our students want to spend a day in a larger, more bustling city, they’re just 20 minutes away from Florence and less than two hours from Rome. Tuition and fees remain the same as if students were attending our main campus - the only difference in price is the cost of airfare!
