Lodging & Arrival Information - Rome, Italy  



Homestay Single or double room, with breakfast, or half board. Most of the host families have worked with us for many years. The families know from experience what the role of a host is. Living with a host family offers you the opportunity to become quickly into the Italian society. Nowhere else will you so directly experience real Italian life. The word 'family' should not be taken too literally, because your family could also be a single parent or a childless couple who take in students because they enjoy the company. You can choose between a room with breakfast or half-board (breakfast and dinner). It is obvious that you will have to adjust a little to the rules of the house. Apart from that, you are free to do what you want. You will be given your own keys, so you can come and go as you please. Students in home-stays will be able to receive phone calls.

Apartment Single or double room, shared use of kitchen, bathroom and shower, living room and other common areas. You share a flat or floor of a house either with other students from our school, with other Italian students or with the owner. In selecting the apartments, we do not look for luxury and comfort in material sense, but the apartments are furnished with all essential utilities (bed, table, chair, wardrobe). Kitchen and bathroom are of common use.

In the fully equipped kitchen you can prepare your meals separately or together with your flatmates and fellow students. Normally there is no telephone in the apartment. In any case, our schools can provide you with cell phone rental services.

You and your fellow-lodgers are expected to keep your apartment clean, although every two weeks an employee will clean the common areas.

Be aware that if you book apartment accommodation, you will most likely have to eat out the first evening as all supermarkets are closed on Sundays.

Upscale Apartment Single room, shared use of kitchen, bathroom and shower, living room and other common areas. Our shared extra comfort apartments are of various sizes, each one offering a welcoming and functional atmosphere. Residents share bathroom and kitchen. The linens are changed weekly and the common areas are cleaned on a weekly basis as well. The apartments are not equiped with telephone lines. Each room has a safe. We recommend booking early as there are only a few extra comfort apartments available.

Lodging for non-students families or hotel accommodations are only available on request.
