'Live the Life' in Prato, Italy
The University of New Haven opened its first international satellite campus in Prato, Italy in the fall of 2012. The historic city of Prato offers University of New Haven students an authentic Italian cultural experience. Prato, the second largest city in the region, is just 20 minutes from Florence and one hour from Pisa by train.
While experiencing life abroad, students will have the opportunity to enroll in five classes taught by both University of New Haven and Italian faculty. All University of New Haven tuition and fees remain the same as if students were attending our main campus in West Haven, Connecticut - the only difference in price is the cost of airfare!
