The perfect location

Swiss Alps. Glacial lakes. Mediterranean climate. An Italian flavor. An international population. This is the city we call home: Lugano, Switzerland. Franklin’s founders chose Lugano as the perfect location for the kind of school they had envisioned for all of these reasons and more. Lugano’s cosmopolitan character is central to the experience of life at Franklin, and the campuses are only a twenty-minute walk from the center of Lugano, where rail and airlines connect students with all of Europe.

Visit Franklin and see why so many students feel at home on our campus and in the Lugano community. We welcome you, your friends and family to experience what it means to live and learn in our international environment.
