Services & Facilities

Throughout the online phase students are supported by a technical help-desk managed by UNITAR for any problem related to the access to the e-learning platform and the visualization of its resources.

During the optional residential component at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa, Italy, students will have access to several services and facilities. In particular:

The specialist interest library is located in the historical setting of Sant’Anna’s main campus, a former Benedictine nunnery of the XVth century. MEPA students will be able to access specialist interest – unique throughout Italy – collections, and large reference works, amounting to a total of about 64,000 books, 492 currently published journals, 17,000 titles of e-journals, and interdisciplinary and sectorial databanks. In particular, MEPA students will be given online access to consult e-journals and the database from distance. 

The canteen offers daily meal options (including vegetarian), where the MA students can eat at lunch at no cost for the entire length of the residential phase in Pisa, during lesson and exam days. Students have free access to the computer rooms in the Scuola and wireless connection within the premises, and to the electronic resources of the library off-campus.
