The Director informs that after several meetings related to Study in Venice, all the students of the Academy, the Conservatory and the university sector are offered the opportunity to use a new web platform dedicated to the search of apartments for students in Venice historical center, a result obtained after a work carried out in recent months in collaboration with the City of Venice and trade associations acting in the area.

The initiative aims to increase the offer of accommodation available to students who intend to move to Venice c.s. from September 2020, guaranteeing facilitated rents and rental contracts in accordance with the law.

In addition, this collaboration aims to promote a conception of the city that moves away from the risks of mono-activity tourism and promotes an increasingly concrete integration of the university community, which is not only formed by the approximately 30,000 students enrolled at Iuav University, Ca' Foscari University, Academy of Fine Arts and Benedetto Marcello Conservatory, but also by teachers, technical administrative staff and collaborators.

All the useful information for students who are looking for a house in Venice and for owners who have a property and would like to rent it are available on: students.veniceapartment.com
