Student apartments for rent in Florence

In this Italian city, many student flats are located close to universities or in the city centre, making it easy to access educational facilities and local services.

Most students prefer to live in an apartment with multiple rooms shared among several people. These flats generally come fully furnished with basics like beds, desks, chairs, and closets. They also usually have a fully equipped kitchen.

Other options to consider are one bedroom apartments and studio flats. Studios are usually pricier since you have to cover all costs yourself, but they offer more privacy with your own bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.

Student rooms for rent in Florence

In Florence, and in Italy in general, you’ll find both single and shared rooms. Single rooms have everything necessary for one person to move in, such as a bed, closet, desk, and chair.

On the other hand, shared rooms are usually cheaper, however, think about it carefully, as you won’t have much privacy since you’ll be sharing all the spaces. It all depends on your preferences and budget!

Student flat in Florence

Here are some of the most popular areas to live in if you're a student or young professional in this Italian city.

Flats for rent in the centre Florence

Living in the city centre is one of the best options, since it puts you close to the city’s most frequented spots (stores, restaurants, monuments, nightlife, etc.). The price of housing is a bit more expensive than in other parts of the city, but it’s worth it if you can afford it.

Apartments in San Marco and San Lorenzo

These neighbourhoods are favourites among students wanting to live in Florence’s old town. San Marco is considered the university district, with many of the main faculty buildings. San Lorenzo, situated next to San Marco, is known for its large market, where you can find all kinds of decorative items, fashion, and food.

Rooms for rent in Santa Croce

Located near the Arno River and home to the Basílica di Santa Croce di Firenze, this area’s proximity to universities and the city centre makes it very attractive for students.

Erasmus accommodation near the Università degli Studi di Firenze

This institution has three campuses (also called polos) and several buildings spread across different parts of the city. The main campus is in San Marco, the Scientific and Technological Pole is in Sesto Fiorentino, and the Social Sciences Pole is in Novoli. There are also many buildings located in the city centre. Read more information about the University's location and how to find convenient housing in this article, and here's more information of the campus of the University, with maps and transportation options.

Student residences in Florence

In this Tuscan city, you’ll find a wide variety of student residences offering single rooms, shared rooms, and studio apartments.

Keep in mind that university-owned residences are not very common in this Italian city, so they aren’t usually an option for international students.
