Accommodation and other benefits

The University of Parma, as most Italian Universities, is not a residential University, i.e., it does not have dormitories or apartments for students, therefore students must search for an accommodation autonomously. However, there are various possibilities to find accommodation and the University will provide assistance to the students for finding accommodation in Parma: please contact the International Students Exchanges and Welcome Office (see “General practical information”) for this kind of help:


U.O. Accoglienza e Orientamento

Servizio Accoglienza Studenti
Università di Parma
Vicolo Grossardi 4 (1°piano)
I-43125 Parma PR, Italy
Tel.: +39 0521 904150


The main way to get an accommodation and other benefits (e.g. grants or scholarships) is referring to “ER-GO” ( ), a Regional Body that manages this matter in agreement with our University. An English version of the site is available from the ER-GO home page. A list of ER-GO responsibilities is on this webpage. A “direct line” to ER-GO is found here.

To apply for accommodation and other benefits a call is issued every July. Information on the last issued call is available here.

A general notice about accommodation assistance at the University of Parma is available in this pdf.

Further information on accommodation opportunities can be found in the document “General practical information” on the home page and in the welcome package booklet.
