  • There are licensed rental agents in Bergamo who work quite independently of the Centre and who can be contacted for accommodation.
  • Relevant information will be sent to the student together with the letter of acceptance.

  • In choosing appropriate clothing, it will help prospective students to know that the winter climate of Northern Italy is cold, rainy and foggy, and that the standard of European heating may vary greatly. Furthermore there are occasions for which formal dress is required.

  • Please ensure that all personal electrical appliances are compatible with Italian voltage (220 volts).
