JASMINE ALERS '20
My dream has always been to travel the world.
At the University of New Haven, the health and safety of all members of our community remain our top priority. We have reimagined life at the University to help deliver high-quality education in as safe an environment as possible.
This website provides updated information about our response to the pandemic and our ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and is being continually updated throughout the Spring 2021 semester.Spring 2021 Info
It appears that with widespread availability of several highly effective COVID-19 vaccines, we can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. To that end, we have spent considerable time planning for the Fall 2021 semester. We are looking forward to being able to return to many of our pre-pandemic norms in terms of class formats, student life, and other staples of the University of New Haven experience.Fall 2021 Planning
Piazza San Francesco, 8, Prato, Italy
Directions: Google Maps
Piazza San Francesco enjoys a fantastic position in the historic heart of the city center, just a few steps from the cathedral and all of the city’s monuments. In the historic center of Prato, students find everything they need for day-to-day life. The campus and housing locations are no more than a 15-minute walk apart. The train station is a five-minute walk from the school. There are many shops and restaurants in the area as well.
With everything so easy to reach and access on foot, students immerse themselves into what this city has to offer, either working together or with locals to enrich their surroundings. For example, many students participate in weekly conversation exchanges with local students, while others teach at local schools. Some go to a local training college to do cooking lessons with Italian students in exchange for language practice, while others are welcomed by local families for home-cooked dinners and conversation. Through these experiences, students gain more knowledge and better language skills, and, more importantly, they grow in independence, maturity, and self-confidence in their own abilities.
