The great literate and jurist Cino from Pistoia, living in Marche in the years 1319–21, and in Camerino in the spring of 1321, described the territory as blooming with juridical schools. Camerino became a center of learning no later than 1200; offering degrees in civil law, canonical law, medicine, and literary studies. Upon the request of Gentile III da Varano, Gregory XI issued the papal edict of 29 January 1377, directed to the commune and to the people, authorizing Camerino to confer (after appropriate examination) bachelor and doctoral degrees with apostolic authority.

In 1727, Benedict XIII founded the Universitas Studii Generalis with the faculties of theology, jurisprudence, medicine, and mathematics. On 13 April 1753 the validity of the degrees from Camerino was extended to the whole territory of the Holy Roman Empire and confers to the rector the title of palatine count. In 1861, after annexation by the Kingdom of Italy, the university was proclaimed "free" and it remained so up to 1958, when it became a State University.


These are the 5 faculties in which the university is divided into:


Students enrolled at the University of Camerino have the opportunity to accommodate themselves on the campus. Its location is in the north of Camerino at the city's border. On the campus there are apartments for two or more people, each with separate bedrooms, a kitchen and a bath room. A shuttle bus (regular bus line) takes the students with a valid Unicam bus ticket into the city center for free.
