Off-Campus Residences may be described as dormitory-style facilities located in the center of Florence. Residences are high-occupancy living arrangements (meaning a large residence, an entire floor, or an entire building houses NYU Florence students in apartment-style suites with several bedrooms, shared common areas, and bathrooms) and offer specific amenities, including Internet and cleaning/linens service. Bedrooms consist of singles (limited availability), doubles, triples, and quads.
|Single Bedroom||1 person to 1 bedroom||$8,932|
|Double Bedroom||2 persons to 1 bedroom||$6,049|
|Triple Bedroom||3 persons to 1 bedroom||$5,654|
|Multi-person Bedroom||4 persons to 1 bedroom||$4,974|
Costs based on Spring 2014 rates.
A note about Internet in Off-Campus Residences: In Italy, Internet service may not be as efficient or consistent as that to which students are accustomed. Students should expect that at times, Internet service may be sporadic. NYU Florence, the landlords, and the telephone company work to reinstate service when connections fail, but issues are not always quickly or easily resolved. Students can help with the process by maintaining communication with the Facilities Office in Florence. Sometimes repairs require time and therefore patience on the part of the residents affected.
According to Italian National Anti-Terrorism laws, only those persons registered to live in a particular living situation may spend the night there.
NYU Florence can only register students enrolled in the program as living in its housing, and housing assignments are specific and registered in advance, so overnight guests are not permitted under any circumstances.
Guests must stay in hotels or find other accommodations. Daytime guests are permitted between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. All students and guests must follow visitation rules.
In wintertime, students should be prepared for rooms to be kept at lower temperatures than is customary in the U.S. Local law permits a maximum temperature of 20°C (68°F), with a tolerance of 2 extra degrees only, and heat may only be on for a total of twelve hours each day per the law. Furthermore, there are laws that specify when in the year heating systems may be activated and must be deactivated (usually November 1st and April 15th respectively). While air conditioning is available on campus, this is a rare commodity off-campus and varies in effectiveness. Students who need air conditioning for health reasons should request to live on campus.
In some living situations, hot water heaters may be limited in capacity, causing hot water to run out quickly. Students may need to be careful about usage.
NYU Florence staff will try to accommodate student preferences; however, due to space limitations, students may be placed in any of the housing possibilities. Upper-class students should be aware that on-campus options may be limited, and priority is given to students who have a documented need to live on campus. NYU Florence will only consider roommate requests for the same bedroom (i.e. double, triple), not based upon a larger groupings (i.e. a suite, an entire floor or residence, residences located in the same vicinity, etc.). NYU cannot release roommate information prior to arrival due to privacy laws. While students may request a living situation offered in a prior term, be aware that the off-campus properties sometimes change from term to term.
