The TASIS campus stands on the Collina d’Oro (“Hill of Gold”) in Montagnola, a small village overlooking Lugano. The spectacular setting, with the Swiss mountains above and Lake Lugano below, is a constant reminder of the grandeur and beauty of nature.

Symbolized in the TASIS Crest as the Tower, culture is central to a TASIS education; the emphasis on art and history starts with the campus itself. Both the historic and new, award-winning campus buildings suggest the nobility toward which humans can aspire.

A colorful combination of relics from the 17th century and state-of-the-art, eco-friendly new buildings, the campus is a hive of learning and activity. The classic architecture of the campus buildings, with their graceful, humane proportions, helps to focus TASIS students on a significant purpose of their education: to value genuine beauty in their own lives.
