Meals include breakfast, lunch, and dinner, on weekdays and brunch, and dinner, on weekends and holidays. Students on the plans should note: any entrance to the dining hall counts as a meal; missed meals are not credited to the following week, and contracts are not transferable. Meal plans do not cover dining service during semester breaks or holiday periods when classes are not in session. Shirts and shoes are required at all meals. Only extraordinary medical conditions, verified in writing by a physician, may exempt students from the requirement to purchase the meal plan. The written request form the medical doctor must be presented to the Dean of Student Development. The cost of meals is calculated on a weekly basis from the first day of the contract through the end of the week in which the withdrawal occurs. A full week is charged for any fraction of the week. Soft drink and food vending machines are located throughout the campus. There are 3 residence halls in the University, each is air-conditioned and each room has cable television and computer connections. - Merici Hall - features single and double occupancy rooms, a laundry, a recreation room and kitchenettes. - Saffer Hall - single occupancy residence hall, featuring laundry, lounges and kitchenettes. - Young Hall and Trustees Hall - University Apartments - are air-conditioned apartment buildings consisting of 12 units each containing 5 single bedrooms, a full kitchen, living room, coin-operated laundry and 2 full bathrooms.

Health & Safety

Office of Student Development maintains a series of emergency procedures to assist students who may find themselves in difficult situations. Students are encouraged to contact a member of the staff, including Resident Assistants, if they are experiencing any kind of crisis situation. The University offers a health insurance plan underwritten by Nationwide Life Insurance Company of Columbus, Ohio. Student brochures with plan details are available in the Student Development Office and at the Cashier’s Office. Brescia requires that full-time students carry health insurance through the University, unless it is demonstrated that they have comparable coverage already in place. Students attending weekend classes or taking online classes only are exempt from this requirement. Health insurance cost is automatically added to the student’s account unless there is clear evidence of comparable coverage presented to the Cashier’s Office by the seventh day of the semester. Only official insurance cards or policies are acceptable verification of coverage. International students are required to carry medical insurance through Brescia University. Brescia University regards tampering with equipment designed for fire safety (alarms, extinguishers, emergency lights, hoses, etc.) a serious offense. Misuse use of fire equipment should be reported to the Dean of Student Development for appropriate disciplinary action.

Location

Brescia offers a variety of opportunities for spending evening characterized by cheer and good food. Besides, university students give this industrious city a verve that is significantly lacking in other Lombardy cities, except for Milan. Moreover, it on the weekend that life explodes on the city's piazzas and streets. In the old town center behind the Piazza della Loggia, Piazza Paolo VI and Piazza Vescovato, there is a large concentration of restaurants, wine bars and cafés. The Brescia City has two important venues for a night at the theater: the Teatro Grande is the city's temple for classical music and opera, while the prose theater is the Santa Chiara, built in a former convent. In Brescia, there's no big problem continuing the evening late into the night but the places tend to be outside the center. The province has a great many famous discos, with the majority in Desenzano and Sirmione on Lake Garda.

Alumni & Post-Grad

The Brescia University Alumni Association, established in 1956, consists of regular, associate, and honorary members. Regular membership includes any person who holds an undergraduate degree conferred by Brescia University. Associate membership includes any person who attending the aforementioned institutions but did not earn a degree. At the present time, there are over 5,000 people who meet the requirements for membership in the Brescia University Alumni Association. Alumni of a Brescia undergraduate program are eligible for a 25% tuition discount for Brescia’s undergraduate courses. A child of an alumnus who is 25 years or younger, the spouse of an alumnus, or the dependent of an alumnus is eligible for a 10% discount on Brescia’s undergraduate courses. The Office of Alumni Relations hosts a variety of events throughout the year to bring together Brescia graduates. All alumni have access to the Fr. Leonard Alvey Library.

Jobs & Internship

Career planning is a lifelong process and a major component of the mission of Brescia University. It involves assessing each student’s interest, skills, and lifestyles in relation to their career choice. Brescia students are encouraged to consult with Career Services. Career Services can also be helpful to students seeking off-campus employment (full-time, part-time, and summer). Job announcements are posted regularly outside of the office and on Brescia e-mail. The office offers professional assistance with resume writing, job interview skills, cover letters, and professional dress. While career planning begins on your first day as a Brescia University student, seniors, in particular, are encouraged to meet with Career Services at the start of the fall semester for help with the transition from the campus to the working world. Career Services Office is located on the second floor of the Campus Center.
