Villa San Giacomo is a male university college that caters to young Catholics who intend to live an intense community and Christian experience during their years of study and stay in Bologna.

The House is organized as a family community of young people who have the opportunity, over the years, to acquire a qualified cultural preparation and to develop an authentically Christian conscience. The basic principles on which Villa San Giacomo is based are: the commitment to study in view of a qualified professionalism; prayer and spiritual formation; the attention and fruitful participation in the Eucharist and in the liturgy of the Church; the formation of Christian graduates, motivated and prepared, who know how to engage their knowledge in the service of the Church, to be evangelical ferment in society; the development of a sensitivity towards poverty and the education of adolescents and young people.
Villa San Giacomo provides students with food, accommodation and all other cultural and educational services that are considered necessary or useful for adequate academic preparation and for a complete growth on the human, religious, social and political levels.
The house has 50 single rooms with bathroom and air conditioning, WIFI internet access, a large park.
