The research projects are coordinated by internationally renowned scientists: some members of the School have received honoris causa degrees in prestigious universities, they were given important prizes or are members of leading scientific academies.

The Library houses more than 20,000 monographs, all graduation theses (PhDs and Master's Degrees) of SISSA students and 20,000 volumes of bound periodicals. Moreover, it provides access to about 6,000 scientific journals and the main mathematics, physics and neuroscience databases. It also offers the SISSA Digital Library.
The gym is situated in the middle of the park, and is available to SISSA students and staff.
