Flatshare in Rome

Rome is an ideal city for students, offering a vibrant and youthful atmosphere. You'll be surrounded by history, culture, and art in every corner while enjoying a multicultural environment. These qualities of Rome attract thousands of students annually, driving up rental costs. As a result, many young people opt for shared apartments to save on rent and utility bills, including electricity, water, and internet. Plus, having roommates will make your time in Rome even more enjoyable!

Advantages and disadvantages of sharing a flat in Rome

Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of living in a shared flat in the capital of Italy:

Advantages of sharing a flat in Rome

  • Many shared flats are located in bustling student neighbourhoods like San Lorenzo or Trastevere. Living here puts you close to popular hangouts for young people.
  • Locals are very friendly and welcoming to international students, so you'll fit right in.
  • You can find both single and shared rooms, making it easier to stick to your budget.

Disadvantages of sharing a flat in Rome

  • Since it's the go-to option for students, finding a shared flat can be pretty competitive. Start your search early to have more choices to choose from.
  • The high cost of accommodation forces many students to look for rooms in neighbourhoods far from the centre, like Centocelle or Garbatella. If you opt for this, be prepared for lengthy commutes.
  • Living with roommates can be tricky, so it's wise to set some ground rules from the start.

Erasmus Apps for your exchange programme in Rome

Make the most of the Erasmus+ apps to help you with your exchange process. These apps offer access to experiences and advice from other Erasmus students, assistance with necessary paperwork, and information about student life in Rome.

How to meet people in Rome?

Living in a shared flat means your roommates will likely become great friends. Here are some other ways to meet people:

Student associations in Rome

The Erasmus Student Network has an association in Rome called ESN Roma ASE. It's mainly for students attending Sapienza University of Rome, but you can join their activities and events even if you attend another institution.

Facebook groups for Erasmus students in Rome

ESN Roma ASE has a Facebook group where they post upcoming events and photos of their activities. You can also join other groups like Erasmusland Rome, and groups specific to your academic year.

WhatsApp groups for Erasmus students in Rome

Many Facebook groups and associations create messaging groups on platforms like WhatsApp, for students to connect and stay updated on activities. ESN Roma ASE, for example, has a Telegram group that you can access through links on their social networks.

Tips for living in a shared apartment in Rome

Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • In Rome, there aren’t many student residence options, so most young people choose rooms in shared flats for a similar experience.
  • The Italian capital is very touristy. If you choose to live in central neighbourhoods, be prepared to deal with tourists daily, which can get overwhelming after a while.
  • Try to have at least one Italian roommate to practise and learn the language. With other international students, you'll likely end up speaking English, as they are often more proficient in it.
