Interested students should contact these hotels and residences directly. All Sapienza housing agreements include an official contract, free intermediation services, quality standards and guarantee the conformity and safety of housing. Moreover, all Sapienza housing providers are required to provide residents with a questionnaire to evaluate the quality of the services they provide.


Students looking for housing may also take advantage of the Sturent Infodesk (in front of the Palazzo delle Segreterie, mapsee contacts in right-hand column).


The School for Advanced Studies awards 16 scholarships every year that provide the best students with free tuition and free accommodation.
