Homestay

3

Living with a local family allows you to learn so much about the Florentine lifestyle —and Italian family life in general —that you wouldn’t otherwise experience. A homestay will likely mean built-in friends, and will definitely mean that you won’t have to worry about what to make for dinner, how much you’re spending on food, or how you’re going to make your next meal both balanced and delicious! A homestay experience enhances your study abroad experience. Homestays are located in apartments either inside or outside Florence’s historical city center. While public transportation may offer a quicker way to school, you will still be within walking distance of the CEA Florence Center and the partner university.

Don’t worry about needing to speak perfect Italian before moving in with an Italian family: our host families are chosen for their interest in learning about you and your culture, and many have a working knowledge of English, too. While some families are empty-nesters, we do privilege younger families: both offer you an important connection with the Florentine community.

The homestay option will not hinder your freedom with a curfew, and you can even choose to live with a friend of your choice!

The additional fee covers the cost of your meals with your host family, and is nearly the equivalent of what students in standard CEA housing will pay separately for groceries and eating out (minus the fuss!).

  • CEA Florence Center: 20-25 minutes (including public transport, if necessary)

Palazzo dello Studente

5

The ground floor also hosts a café and restaurant, and there is a 24-hour front desk. The Palazzo is located along a tram line and is within easy walking distance of the CEA Florence Center.

Independent Living

0

While CEA highly recommends that you choose one of our Florence housing options provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. If your ideal housing scenario includes living in a particular neighborhood, having specific amenities or living with a specific person as your roommate, then independent housing could be just the ticket for you.

Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date.
