Is it easy to find accommodation in Turin?
Useful links through which you may start looking at accommodation in Turin can be found in the relevant section (Useful links) and further information will be provided to selected applicants upon acceptance.
Finding accommodation depends on the specific needs of each student. Students who prefer to live closer to the central area of Turin (Centro, Quadrilatero Romano, San Salvario) should generally expect to find more expensive solutions, whilst accommodations in areas that are closer to the UN Campus are usually cheaper. You can expect to pay between € 250 and € 700 per month depending on the type of accommodation you choose (i.e. shared flat, single room, double room, studio, etc.) and on the area of town.
Public transport from the city centre to the Campus area can take approximately 30 minutes. Busses and the tube run less frequently at night.
Accommodation will also be available on the ITCILO campus upon confirmation of availability.
