Studying at unibz guarantees not only a high quality academic education, but also high quality free time! South Tyrol, where two cultures coexist, is also the place where the Mediterranean climate mixes with the Alpine one; an ideal situation for sports lovers and everyone else who enjoys the great outdoors.
The University’s student sports club, SCUB, organises various events throughout the year, including courses, races and tour-naments, ranging from climbing to handball, and everything in between. The other student organisations, kikero, PRO – Students For Business and Talìa UniLife also organise various free time events.
And for those people who enjoy keeping moving and being outside, South Tyrol is really the place to be: jogging, cycling, walking in the mountains, climbing and last, but certainly not least, skiing and snowboarding. All of this in the stunning landscape afforded by the beautiful Dolomites declared in 2009 a UNESCO World Heritage Site – quality free time!
All those who prefer city life have plenty to choose from: in the central streets of Bozen-Bolzano, Brixen-Bressanone and Bruneck-Brunico there are various bars and restaurants with their own individual atmosphere, as well as a varied cultural life. Bozen-Bolzano is the home of Ötzi, the oldest mummy in the world.
Art and culture fill the city’s Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Museion, as well as the theatres, in particular the Teatro Comunale with its full programme comprising opera, dance, musicals and plays. But this isn’t the only stage in the area: in Bozen-Bolzano and Brixen-Bressanone there are several smaller theatres with their own, sometimes quirky, programmes. The jazz, film and dance festivals that take place throughout the year in the three university towns make time spent here even more varied and exciting. During Advent time, those who are charmed by this special atmosphere, can visit the famous Christmas markets organised all over South Tyrol.
