ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Italian lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Italy. All ISA Housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located to public transit routes. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between 15 and 40 minutes depending on housing and class locations. Please note: All housing in Florence is subject to availability.
The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable at all times. There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Italy and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility. With this in mind, you can become a true Florentine!
All apartments are same-sex, non-smoking environments. Meals and laundry service are not included.
For Fall 2014 programs, a $750 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing. For 2015 programs, a $500 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the case of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount.
Homestays are not availble during the J-Term or Intensive Month programs. The homestay option is NOT included in the ISA program price. Please contact ISA for additional homestay fees.
*All housing assignments are based on space available and student responses on the Housing Questionnaire.
