USAC classes will be held at IdeaVerona Italian Language and Culture Institute founded in 1998 which is housed within a much larger education complex : the Salesian Don Bosco Institute of Verona, founded over 100 years ago.

This colorful, well maintained complex is home to a wide range of educational institutions including elementary and primary schools, universities, and technical institutes.

On the grounds and part of the complex is the Verona campus of the Salesian University Institute of Venice (Istituto Universitario Salesiano Venezia- IUSVE) with hundreds of Italian university students taking courses mostly in communications, marketing and psychology. Some USAC activities will also be held here.

Students will have access to many of the complex facilities including University study space and some sports facilities (e.g. outdoor basketball, indoor volleyball); language partners and activities with local university students will also be arranged.

On the grounds there is a spacious, inexpensive cafe where Italian and international students and faculty enjoy coffee, breakfast, snacks through the day and are great spots to meet your language partner or make new local friends during breaks between classes. USAC students have access to the cafe and cafeteria on campus for inexpensive meals, or can easily go to many shops, restaurants, cafes, etc. in the attractive, clean, tree-lined neighborhood.
