COST OF LIVING IN ITALY

The next thing you need to consider is accommodation. Most Italian universities don’t have halls of residence; however they often provide accommodation services to help students to find appropriate rental apartments or shared rooms in the private rental market. Universities have a housing office or officer managing university accommodation, which provide information on renting student apartments at cheaper cost. These options usually come at a lower cost if you use the university services to find your accommodation.

What do Students Pay Money for Every Month?

  • Single room in a shared apartment: from € 250 to € 400 a month + utilities
  • Shared room in a shared apartment: from € 150 to € 220 a month + utilities
  • Food at a supermarket for one week: € 40 approximately
  • Meal in a University canteen: from € 4 to € 6 for a full meal
  • Monthly bus ticket € 27

Renting an apartment in cities and large towns will be more expensive and can range from 300 Euros to 1000 Euros a month, depending on the size and the area where you choose to stay. Student accommodation will give you the option to rent a room rather than the whole apartment. The minimum rent period is usually one year but furnished rooms in university towns are available for shorter periods.
