The Novedrate campus

of eCampus Online University

The headquarters of eCampus Online University are in Novedrate (Como).
The complex was built in the early 1970s, based on a design by the architect Bruno Morassutti, a disciple of F.L. Wright. Until July 2003, it housed IBM’s Training Centre.

The structure is located inside the park that surrounds Villa Casana, a building that dates back to the early eighteenth century. The park covers an area of 150,000 square metres.
