Accommodation and meals

Accommodation and meals, as well as some other facilities (subsidies and grants) are provided by "Ersu" (Ente regionale per il diritto allo studio universitario). It works in a similar way to a Student’s Union.

It grants two different types of interventions and services: services and facilities to all students (information, refectories, meetings, cineforums and multimedial services, cultural, touristic and cinema services) and services and facilities to students endowed with particular merits and qualifications (scholarships, accomodation, economic aids for international mobility, computer courses, foreign languages courses, Italian language courses for foreign students).

It also reserves 60 beds, in the Hall of Residence “Caracciolo” for Erasmus, Socrates and Tempus students and in particular cases, students with handicaps or students studying at the Centre for Physical Education Training. Reservations must be done directly by e-mail addressed to the administrative office placed in the residence: The students' accomodation is opened all year round with the exception of holiday periods.
