The Manor of San Pio V

Our University is situated in a magnificent historical complex, the Manor of San Pio V, immersed in a wonderful park in the centre of Rome, right next door to the Vatican City.

You will have the opportunity to enjoy studying at a university with a highly innovative imprint within an atmosphere of rare beauty, steeped in history and ancient conquests.

Built on the order of Pope Pius V in the XVI century, the Manor was a summer residence of the Pope up until 1655 when the Chigi family took over ownership. In 1870, Queen Margherita of Savoy took control of the Manor, transforming it into a hospice for blind people – Sant’Alessio Regional Centre, Margherita di Savoia per i Ciechi.

Since 2016, the Manor of San Pio V has become the home of Link Campus University.

The Ancient Library

The Ancient Library hosts major conferences, high-profile events, and is where students conduct their dissertation defence.


Located at the very heart of the Manor of San Pio V is the Gymnasium, which can accommodate up to 250 people during seminars and conferences.

Study Room

Our Study Room is a place where students can really concentrate on their studies. It has all the necessary facilities including a Computer Lab open until 8pm.

Romagnoli building

The Romagnoli building is where most classes are held.


Most classes are held in the Manor, within the Romagnoli building. All classrooms are well-equipped and limited in size to receive up to 25 students, so as to encourage direct dialogue between professors and students.

Furthermore, the room layout enables teachers to apply a teaching methodology which combines lectures, simulations, and lab activities with the use of PCs, to create a learning experience based on a close collaboration among students as well as between professors and students.

Gardens and Courtyard

Through the main entrance, there is a spacious courtyard and the Manor’s secret garden.


Immersed in green, the university’s central square is located in front of the Gymnasium between the Romagnoli building and the Manor. This is one of our students’ favourite outdoor meeting points.

Art cafè

Link Campus’s Art Café is located within the Manor of San Pio V, and is a place where our students and staff can have lunch, meet for an aperitif, or simply relax.

Info Point

The Info Point is located at the entrance in Via del Casale di San Pio V, and is where you start your university experience.
It is a cosy place with interactive spaces where you can meet our advisors, who will help you get to know the University, the courses, and all the services offered here.
