Present in 17 countries with 43 locations and numerous institutes, our university connects more than 5,000 students from five continents. It is in this international and multicultural environment that students and teachers come together, creating a privileged forum for human and intellectual enrichment.

The internationality of the Pontifical Lateran University is evident in the network of institutions, which in different ways pursue institutional and academic relations with our university. Aggregated and affiliated academic entities, located on almost all continents, are a key way to increase the educational offerings of our university. Their presence highlights the nature of the Pontifical University and its desire to be open to diverse and varied cultures, thus offering a platform where these cultures may encounter one another in keeping with an authentic Christian spirit.

Among these, there are four Incorporated Institutes which have an even stronger and privileged link to the Lateran, functioning as graduate study programs for the Faculty of Theology, while at the same time enjoying complete autonomy. These are: the Alphonsian Academy (Graduate Institute of Moral Theology), the Augustinianum (Patristic Institute), the Camillianum (Theology Institute of Pastoral Health Care), the Claretianum (Institute of the Theology of the Consecrated Life) and the Sanyasa Institute of Consecrated Life.

The Lateran is a member of the following organizations:

  • FIUC: Fédération Internationale des Universités Catholiques
  • FUCE: Fédération des Universités Catholiques Européennes
  • EUA: European University Association – Association des Universités Européennes
