Italian term or phrase: scole
il palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, sede dell'Univeristà dal 1562, quando fu costruito dal Terribilia per ospitare sotto lo stesso tetto tutte le "scole" dello Studium.

I presume this means something like faculties, but should I leave it in Italian with an explanation or is there an "official" translation?

"scole" ("schools")
Explanation:
This is the original version of the modern Italian "scuola" and, like its English cognate "school", derives from the Ancient Greek σχολη', a word that originally meant "leisure" (in the sense of non-productive activity) or "study".

If you want to visit the main administrative offices of my old university, you'll find them in the "Old Schools", Trinity Lane, Cambridge.
