After that, you will have to get in contact with the local Italian Diplomatic-consular mission for the visa request process.

All our students must ensure they hold adequate insurance within the Schengen area (at least) offering minimum coverage of medical costs for at least 30,000 EUR, and covering risks related to health, accidents, permanent invalidity, urgent health attention and/or emergency hospital treatment or even death, including possible repatriation for medical reasons.

  • Non-European students must ensure they hold valid insurance fulfilling the requirements established by local authorities in the country where they will be studying that will enable them to obtain a visa, a residence permit, and enrolment at university. Note that requirements may vary a lot from country to country even within the Schengen area.
  • EU students, on the other hand, won't need to purchase any additional private insurance if they think they don't need one, but they have to ensure they hold a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

Currently, our university hasn't got its own halls of residence, though there is one in town managed by the Abruzzo Regional Agency for Education, aka A.D.S.U. (a link is provided below). However, as L'Aquila is undergoing huge reconstruction after the 2009 earthquake, we strongly suggest you opt for renting a flat from private owners. The cost per person ranges from 150 to 350 euros per month depending on several factors (e.g. shared or private rooms, utility bills included or not, area). Living near the campus (the area is in a suburb in west L'Aquila known as Coppito) can be cheaper but this means staying on the outskirts away from the city life (events, nightlife, restaurants...).
Lately, a new student hall has opened up in town - it's known as Camplus. It is a private one, with no relation whatsoever with our university, but it is ideally located in the heart of the city centre, and fares seem to be in line with the rest of the private flats (they also offer Wi-Fi, cleaning, maintenance etc.). Check out their website to submit your application and find out more.
