About us

The 'Conferenza dei Collegi Universitari di Merito’ (CCUM) is the association that brings together and represents the Halls of Residence recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (D. Lgs. 68/12 e s.m.i.) and defined as 'University Colleges of Merit'. 

As a branch association, CCUM provides an independent and cohesive voice for representing the University Colleges of Merit towards its stakeholders.

According to its Statute, CCUM supports Universities and residential structures by offering advice, programs and services to foster students’ academic success, including their personal and professional development, and to encourage the creation of a thriving university community. CCUM supports the Italian Ministry of Education in the checking phase of the criteria for the recognition and accreditation process.

CCUM develops its activities starting from the experience of the University Colleges of Merit and through the dialogue with leading professional associations of Student Affairs and Services to which it belongs to: NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, originally National Association of Student Personnel Administrators), ACUHO-I (Association of College and University Housing Officers-International).
