PhD Account and Badge

iCatt Page

Upon enrolment, doctoral students will be able to access their iCatt page. Through this page, they will find information concerning their personal details, academic career, payment of enrolment fees, as well as important communications and notices from the Faculty and University services.

Furthermore, the iCatt personal page allows access to Blackboard, the university library system, and the management of Educatt services (e.g., ristoration, housing solutions, health assistance, and psychological counselling).

Finally, the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore adheres to the Student Advantage program, which allows you to download Office 365 Pro Plus for free and install it on 5 different devices. Simply download the Office 365 version and log in using your iCatt page credentials to access this benefit.

Unicatt and Institutional email

Along with the iCatt account (Student Account), you will be provided with a Unicatt account and email, which is your institutional account. Through this email, you will receive important communications related to your doctoral career. Additionally, the Unicatt account grants you access to Blackboard for lectures, where you can manage your courses and subject matter expert profile, among other features.

As with the iCatt account, the Unicatt account grants you the possibility to download Office 365 Pro Plus for free and install it on 5 different devices. As an institutional account, the Unicatt account is equipped with additional capabilities, including access to tools like Teams for Professionals and Skype for Business.


Once enrolled, doctoral students will be provided with an identification badge. This badge can be used to access all locations of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, to enter the co-working spaces reserved for doctoral students, and to use Educatt services (e.g., the cafeteria). Once the badge is ready, the doctoral student will receive an email to collect it at the secretary's office located at Via Carducci (Via Giosuè Carducci, 28/30, 20123 Milano MI).

Moreover, the badge can be enabled, for free, as a prepaid card. To learn how to do this, click on the following link.
