La Sapienza is the main university which is located in the very central area of San Lorenzo. This quarter is full of hip bars and trendy clubs, no doubt thanks to the large student population. San Lorenzo is well placed to access most of the city by bus or metro. Getting to La Sapienza is easy as you exit at the metro stop Policlinico on the blue line (metro B) and the university is all along Viale Regina Elena. You can also get there with the 310 bus which stops right outside most of the faculties. To check the stops, ask at the Termini station information point or get a bus route map.

There are two other universities. Roma III has faculties all over the city and Tor Vergata is on the outskirts near the Metro stop Anagnina. Students don’t get quite as many discounts as they may be used to in countries such as England. However, there are reduced travel tickets, museum entrance, and many others. If you are a History of Art student in the UK or in Italy, and as long as you can prove it, you can get into all museums for free or at very reduced price depending on the museum and the season.
