Getting a room or an apartment in Florence is not easy! We therefore recommend you for one before your arrival. A common way to look for a room is through Facebook. Students searching for a roommate, as well as landlords, announce their rooms on this website and you can directly contact them through their post. You can also make your own post saying that you are looking for a room.
If you have not found a place in advance, you will want to start looking for a place to live for the school year as soon as you arrive. In the meanwhile, the cheapest option is to stay in an Airbnb or at a bed and breakfast, until you find a room.
Contact the Student Desk for more information, we would be happy to assist you.
