UNMSM campus

The campus of UNMSM is located in Lima. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies.

During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. The infrastructure of the university includes various opportunities for playing sports: from different spaces to clubs. Thanks to international exchange programs at UNMSM, students can communicate with representatives of different countries and nationalities and thus expand their own horizons. And, the university contributes to this by regularly holding joint events for local and foreign students.
