*Last update:

Bologna is one of the top Erasmus destinations in Italy, known for its vibrant student life and university atmosphere. Because of this, it’s a good idea to start looking for accommodation well in advance, as the best apartments get booked quickly and options can be limited.

Student apartments for rent in Bologna

Student rental apartments in Bologna vary in size, amenities, and location. They can be shared apartments with multiple rooms or studio apartments for one person. Typically, studios are more expensive since you don’t split the expenses with roommates, unlike in shared apartments.

In terms of amenities, most flats come fully furnished and equipped with basic kitchen appliances like a fridge, oven, and microwave. The rooms are usually furnished too, but this can vary from one apartment to another.

Also, most apartments are located near the universities and the city centre, close to leisure spots. Those in the outskirts of Bologna usually have good public transport connections and are more affordable.

Student rooms for rent in Bologna

In Italy, the term camera singola refers to single rooms for rent. In Bologna, the price for such rooms typically ranges from €350 to €400 per month, depending on their location and condition.

Due to the high demand for housing in the city, many landlords also offer shared rooms, usually shared between two people, known as camera doppia.

Both types of rooms are usually furnished with everything a student needs: a bed, closet, desk, and chair. However, not all of them include bed linen and towels, so make sure to check the description to see if you need to bring these from home or buy them when you arrive in the city.

Here are some of the best areas to live in Bologna:

Apartments for rent in the centre of Bologna

This is one of the best areas to live, surrounded by iconic buildings, historical monuments, and university buildings. However, it’s also the most expensive due to its great location in the Italian city. The centre of Bologna is full of restaurants, bars, and cafés where you can enjoy delicious Italian food at any time of the day.

Flats for rent in Porta San Vitale

This area is popular among students because it’s close to most faculties and the university area. Rental prices for apartments here are lower than in the city centre, making it a good option for students.

Apartments in Santo Stefano

This area offers a variety of accommodations and shared apartments for international students. Its proximity to the university makes it a popular choice among students. It’s a welcoming area to live in, with must-visit spots like Piazza Santo Stefano and the Basilica Santo Stefano.

The main campus of this institution is located in the city centre of Bologna, in the area known as Cittá Universitaria. To find accommodation nearby, look in both the centre and San Donato.

Student residences in Bologna

In Bologna, there are various options for student residences, both private and university-owned. University residences are typically more affordable and offer a communal living experience, while private residences may provide additional amenities and greater flexibility in rental terms.
