You’re going to love your quaint and adorable Italian apartment. All ISI Florence students share accommodations with other students in the program. Apartments are within walking distance of Institute facilities, come with a fully equipped kitchen and have wireless Internet connection. Students will find plenty of grocery and convenience stores, Internet cafés, buses, taxi stands, laundromats, post offices, and restaurants within walking distance. The Student Services and Housing staff are available throughout the term to provide assistance navigating the city, and also to monitor maintenance and utility upkeep in the apartments.
Why not brush up on your cooking skills while living in Italy, the culinary capital of the world? At ISI Florence, students are encouraged to cook for themselves. All apartments are stocked with basic kitchen utensils, and often students discover previously unexplored culinary talents while experimenting in the kitchen. If cooking isn’t for you, the Università di Firenze offers low-price cafeteria meals and is conveniently located in the heart of town. The ISI Florence student ID card is valid for discounts at many trattorias, pizzerias, and cafès around the city. After all, it is Italy: delicious food is never far away.
All enrolled students can download the ISI Florence APP to see the full list of discounted venues and links to Google maps.
Here is a small sample of some of the housing facilities. When you are accepted to the ISI Florence study abroad program, you fill out a housing form and we will find a suitable accommodation in one of our local apartments.
