The “Luigi Vanvitelli” University of Campania ( Second University of Naples , before the change of name), known as SUN , was established in 1991 (D.Murst of 25 March 1991 and DPR 27 April 1992) for the spin-off of the University of Studies Federico II, with the aim of decongesting this great Neapolitan University. Its autonomous activity is therefore officially started on November 1, 1992 with almost nineteen registered students and 8 Faculties spread over five territorial centers.
The School of Medicine offers two specialized one-cycle courses in Medicine and Surgery, one with teaching activities in Caserta (lessons are held at the business center of Caserta in the hamlet of San Benedetto), the other with teaching activities at the polyclinic of Naples (which is its administrative seat). The learning activities of the clinical practice take place at the Caserta civil hospital (and, in part, at Neapolitan structures) for the students of the course based in Caserta; at the two polyclinics in Naples for the students of the course based in Naples.
The Department of Medical, Surgical, Neurological, Metabolic and Aging Sciences was born on 1st January 1992, with DR n. 18163, which establishes the University Department of Gerontology, Geriatrics and Metabolism Diseases of the University of Naples “Federico II”, and then flows into the research institutions of the Second University of Naples (DPR 27.4.92), today the University of studies of the Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” .
The University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli is a university located in the cities and territories of Caserta and Naples, from the region of Campania. The Second University of Naples was its former name, as the university history was common between the School of Medicine and Surgery and University of Naples Federico II between the 19th and 20th centuries.
The libraries of the “Luigi Vanvitelli” University of Campania represent the place dedicated to informative and cognitive support for the University’s didactic and research activities. In recent years libraries have increased the performance of services, both traditional and digital, accessible to users, and the reorganization of the offices is underway.
