Study visas are free of charge. For study more than 90 days you will then need to apply for a residency card (permesso di soggiorno) at the local police station (Questura) with in the first 8 days of arrival in Italy. This along with your visa will allow you to stay in Italy for the duration of your studies. There is a fee associated with the residency card and your on-site directors will assist you with this process.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, you will need to check with your local embassy or consulate to verify entry requirements for Italy.
Note: Embassy and consulate contact information is subject to change without notice. Please refer to the website of the embassy or consulate to verify information.
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.
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.
