Since its founding in 1972 by the six original members of the then European Communities, the EUI has earned a reputation as a leading international academic institution with a European focus.
The four departments – Economics, History and Civilization, Law, and Political and Social Sciences – host scholars from more than 60 countries, studying for the Institution’s doctorate or the one-year master in law.
The EUI Counselling Service offers you a professional, secure and friendly space where you can talk about whatever is worrying you, with total respect for your values, choices and lifestyle.
The EUI owns and manages 71 apartments located near the Institute. The EUI Housing Office organizes the allocation of the EUI residential apartments (PAB and PDM) and provides, through FHS (Florence Housing Service), selected following a call for expression of interest, assistance to all members of the EUI Community in finding long and short term accommodation on the private market in and around Florence.
More than forty years of investment in collections, services and infrastructure, have resulted in an internationally recognised social science research library, valued for its multi-national character and the high quality of its collections with a special emphasis on Europe.
The primary aim of the Information and Communication Technology Service (ICT) is to support the European University Institute (EUI) and its community in pursuing teaching and research at the highest university level.
