    • Residences.


    Room-sharingwith another student

    We recommend to book a place in a double room onlyfor young people (max. 30 years). According to our experience, mature peoplenormally do not feel at ease in a double room as they may have to share it withvery young people who have different habits and attitudes.

    We offer you the possibility to come together withyour friend and take a double room, provided by our school, even if theaccompanying person does not take a language course.



    Housing reservations run from the Sunday afternoon(after 2:00 pm) before the beginning of the course to the Saturday morning(10:00 am) at the end of the course. If you need to arrive a day earlier or tostay a day longer, please contact the school for help with extra accommodationarrangements. Different arrival or departure days must be confirmed in writing.However, it is not possible to arrive earlier than the Saturday before thestart of the course and to remain later than the Sunday after the end of thecourse.


    Arrival date and time / Emergency

    We need to be informed at least 4 days in advance ofyour's arrival day and time. Therefore, upon receiving the accommodationaddress, you have to contact the landlord (by telephone) or the school (bytelephone, fax or e-mail) to communicate the date and time of arrival in orderto make the waiting time for both parts as short as possible. If there is nocommunication, you will be expected to arrive in the evening, after 6:00 pm.


    Booking and Payment

    To make reservations for accommodation, we need yourcredit card number as guarantee deposit. Accommodation fees must be paidimmediately upon arrival in Italy. Payments should be made in cash and in full(not by instalments) for each month or for shorter terms.


    Location / Key

    Our accommodations are located in the city centers aswell as in the suburbs. In any case you can easily reach the school and thecenter of the cities by public transport. To get from the suburbs to the centertakes 15 - 25 minutes by public transport (Milan and Rome up to 50 minutes). Ifyou have been placed in the town center it takes about 15 minutes on foot toreach the school. You are given your own key and are independent.

    Photocopy of passport

    Following the events of September 11, 2001, Italianauthorities have intensified checks on foreigners. The result is an unfortunateincrease in paperwork. All landlords in Italy must declare the presence oftenants and thus need a photocopy of passports of all new tenants. We suggestto bring with you a photocopy of your passport.


    Car Parking

    Garages and paid parking spaces are easy to find inthe city centers as well as in the suburbs. There are cheaper weekly andmonthly season tickets available. You can also ask your landlords for theclosest garage or parking area to the accommodation. Should you park the car onthe street, you should consult the street signs or ask the landlord on whichnight the weekly street cleaning ("pulizia della strada") takes placein the area. On that night the car must be parked elsewhere. All cars parked ina prohibited area will be removed.




    In selecting host families, we do not look for luxuryand comfort in the material sense but for Italian families who appreciatereceiving foreign students. Additionally, the word "family" shouldnot be taken too literally, as a family can be "traditional" withchildren, a single parent or a childless couple who take in students becausethey enjoy the company.


    You can choose between breakfast and half board(breakfast and dinner). You have your meals together with the family but youshould be aware that Italian eating habits can be rather different from yourown. Breakfast usually only consists of coffee or tea and bread, butter,marmalade. Dinner is a complete meal served normally at around 8:00 pm.

    House rules in host families

    Living with a family offers a unique opportunity tobecome acquainted with the Italian culture and way of living, but it alsorequires compromises between the host and you. Therefore there are some houserules which you must take into consideration:
