The following questions refer to information about the housing solutions offered to students by Studio Art Centers International.
If the question you would like to ask is not amongst these, please visit our exhaustive FAQ page, where a large number of topics are listed and many more questions are answered.
The apartment size varies from one-person to seven-person apartments with double and single rooms.
Distance varies from right next door to a 20-30 minute walk.
Unfortunately, due to the complex logistics of our student housing organization, we are unable to provide housing information before students' departure. Once students arrive in Florence, they will receive a housing packet with this information included.
Yes, students can indicate preferred roommates on the SACI housing form. The Housing Coordinators will do their best to match all requests when possible.
Students who request single rooms on their SACI housing form have top priority for the single rooms available. Students are assigned to the double rooms following a "first come, first served" basis.
SACI housing is not provided between terms. Academic Year, Post-Bac, and MFA students staying in Italy over the Christmas break can remain in SACI apartments for an additional fee of $400.
Students must vacate their apartments on the last day of term, according to the times and dates provided in the SACI Events Calendar. If you are planning on traveling at the end of term, there are several locations in Florence that offer luggage storage.
The apartments are fully furnished with the exception of towels. You will need to bring them with you or buy them in Florence.
No pets are allowed in SACI housing.
Only SACI students are permitted to stay overnight in SACI apartments, and no one else is—not family members, friends, boyfriends, or girlfriends. It is illegal in Italy to have someone staying overnight in an apartment unless the visitor registers with the local police that he or she is staying in the apartment. But SACI students are not permitted such visitors. The only ones permitted to stay overnight are the SACI students assigned to that apartment—not even other SACI students.
