Residence La Contessina is a facility that offers its clients hotel-style living accommodations and services. Students can enjoy the comforts of their own TV, telephone, internet connection and cleaning service twice a week. All apartments are overlooking the inside courtyard, apartments are divided in two levels: entrance, kitchen/living room and bathroom on the ground floor and 2-3 bedroom on the upper level. A bar/cafeteria, meeting room, reception service and courtyard are also available.
This option is recommended for students interested in being provided with specific services. In addition, this option is not recommended for students looking for a low-priced arrangement, planning to invite guests for long-term/overnight visits and to those who are not able to obey explicit rules.

Option 3: Single or Double Student Apartment
Space is limited. Apartments will be assigned on a first reservation basis according to apartment availability at that particular time and based on the student's personal profile form and any specific roommate/apartment mate requests. Single rooms are limited. Lorenzo de Medici offers housing assistance services with the sole intention of facilitating the student's study abroad experience. The students therefore are not necessarily obliged to choose housing through the school service if they wish to find their own accommodation instead (see option #4).
Apartments are furnished and equipped with bed linen, basic pots and pans, kitchen utensils, washing machine and TV. Towels are generally not-included in the apartment. Although apartments are of the same standard and have similar facilities, no two apartments are alike. Apartments are suitable for minimum of 2 to maximum of 8 persons. Apartments are not all located into the the same building, but are within walking distance from the school facilities. Utilities (water, gas, electricity) are included within the housing costs provided the consumption bills are equal or lower than the average cost determined by the real estate agency.
