Accommodation and CanteensAccommodation
Where can I live?
There are two possible answers to this question: a room in a student hall of residence or a flat managed by the Autonomous Province of South Tyrol or a private rental agreement with a landlord.
Accommodation in student halls of residence and apartments
If you are going to pre-enrol or you are already a student you can apply for a place in a student hall or apartment in Bozen/Bolzano or Brixen/Bressanone.The provision of this accommodation is undertaken by the Office for the Right to Study, Universities and Research of the Autonomous Province of South Tyrol and is given out on a first-come-first-served basis: each year as from mid-May, you are able to start applying.
If you are interested in getting a place in a hall or apartment, it would be a good idea to apply as soon as possible to the Office so that you have a greater chance of getting something.
The monthly rent for a single room is €260, while a bed in a double room costs €200 a month.
Private rental agreements
In order to help students who are looking for accommodation, there are notice boards in the main buildings of the University that have many adverts for rooms and flats. You can also see what is available by clicking on the following link: accommodationunibz.blogspot.com
Students who are looking for rooms in Bruneck/Brunico can make enquiries at the Secretariat in the Bruneck/Brunico premises, where information regarding rooms and flats for rent to university studentsis regularly on display.
The University does not act as a mediator between the landlords and its students: if you see an advert that interests you, you have to contact the person yourself and agree on the details such as rent and payment agreements.
The price of rented rooms and apartments can vary depending on the type (e.g. a room in a flat with other students or a one-bedroomed flat for one person) and the size of the accommodation.
Broadly speaking, the monthly rent for one person can vary from €250 to €350.
We would suggest that you contact the Housing Office (Associazione della Proprietà edilizia della Provincia di Bolzano), which will give you information about contracts and rents for university students (tel.: +39 0471 281 551 - 271 135).

Food intolerance or allergies
If you suffer from either food intolerance or food allergies and you don’t want to give up your meals at the university canteen, you will need to do the following:
- ask your doctor to issue a medical certificate attesting the food allergy or intolerance you are suffering from;
- hand in the certificate to the canteen staff, who will forward it to the nutritionist at Markas Service Italia;
- inform the canteen over the phone (Bozen/Bolzano +39 0471 011 761 | Brixen/Bressanone: +39 0472 201 070) or in person so that you can have a meal according to your needs on the following day.
