Accommodation in Ferrara

The University of Ferrara is located in different historical sites across the ancient city of Ferrara. For this reason there is not a comprehensive dormitory, but there are several private accommodation providers cooperating with the University. To enquire about vacant rooms/flats, sign contracts and whatever is related to accommodation, prospect students have to refer directly to the providers listed below. The International Office won’t provide any accommodation service for incoming students.
