Housing

All Freshman Year in Florence students are required to reside at NYU's historic La Pietra estate. Florence is a small city, so you can easily walk or use public transportation to get almost anywhere. Students reside in multi-person rooms, from doubles, triples, to quads. A meal plan consisting of continental breakfast and dinner showcasing local cuisine is included in the cost of housing for on-campus students.

Villa Natalia

Villa Natalia was the home of 16th Century Italian writer and poet, Giovanni della Casa. In the 19th Century the villa was enlarged and restored to house the exiled Serbian Queen, Natalia. It was from this young woman that the villa derived its name. Villa Natalia was renovated in Fall of 2000 and houses 80 students.
