SUF believes that living with a host family is a vital part of learning about Italian culture but we realize that due to long studio hours and an intense field studies course, most Architecture and Pre-Architecture students prefer to live in apartments.

Selecting and Assigning Apartments
Apartments are booked in advance by our Housing Office and assigned to students after carefully examining their Housing Preference Forms. SUF tries to meet student requests as much as possible (program, smokers/nonsmokers and roommate requests), keeping in mind also specific program requirements such as proximity to studios for architecture students. Apartments somewhat further from the campus are assigned to students with lighter schedule requirements (Pre-Architecture and studio art), and are located near public transportation.

Furnished Apartments
All apartments are fully furnished including bedding, and are equipped with basic utilities such as washing machines and kitchen utensils. Apartments do not have phone lines. We recommend that students rent or purchase cell phones.
