Accommodations

Apartments

Students share apartments with other USAC participants. The residence is a large apartment complex with individual, fully furnished apartments including kitchenettes, as well as common shared areas. Most bedrooms are double occupancy and most apartments are shared by two to four USAC students. A limited number of single rooms are available, and this varies per term. The availability of a single room cannot be guaranteed.

Homestay

Occasionally there may be the opportunity to live with local Italian families or singles. However, this is limited and availability cannot be guaranteed. This option is recommended for those sincerely interested in deep linguistic immersion and practice, and if with a family, assisting children to learn English.
