How to reach the University of Calabria

By Plane
The nearest air terminal is Lamezia Terme airport, also called Sant'Eufemia. Daily connections exist from Milan (Linate) and Rome (Fiumicino) to Lamezia Terme. This airport is at one hour's distance from Cosenza, which can be reached both by taxi (with an expense of about 50 Euro) and by bus (with an expense of about 5 Euro).
For Alitalia flight information please visit the following Web Site:
Link to Lamezia Terme International Airport

By Train
The railway stations in Cosenza and Castiglione Cosentino (the nearest railway station to the university campus) are well connected to the main train station in Paola (18 min.) which, in turn, is connected to Rome and Milan by inter-city and Eurostar trains. Some inter-city trains are also connecting Rome to Cosenza and Castiglione Cosentino directly, without the need of changing train in Paola.
For Italian train schedule please visit the following Web Site:

By Coach
There are daily connections, from Monday to Saturday, from Rome (Stazione Tiburtina) to Cosenza (Stazione Autolinee), done by private companies.

By Car
The most important road connection to Cosenza is the“A-3” motorway (Salerno - Reggio Calabria). The university area is located less than 1 Km away from the “Cosenza Nord” (Salerno- Reggio Calabria) exit. Exiting the motorway, we suggest taking the road for "Paola" and following the road indications for the "Università".

By Bus
The university campus may be reached by university buses leaving each hour from the "Stazione Autolinee" (bus station) in Cosenza and calling nearby the railway station of Castiglione Cosentino, in the town of Rende
