Student accommodation, finding a room
Find a room or house in a big city like Rome might turn out to be a not-too-easy quest....
Since Saint Louis does not have internal accommodation reserved for its students, it has developed two partnerships with Agencies dedicated to finding off-site student accommodation. These are reliable and effective services, both of which work through dedicated websites.
STURENT student accommodation it is a service provided by Immuni srl agency, which researches and selects in the private real estate market suitable housing solutions for all Saint Louis students who need to rent a house or room. The proposed accommodations, carefully selected, are available for rent with transparent conditions and a regular lease.

Sturent's services are free for Saint Louis students and are offered both in Italian and in English. Choose the house you like, visit it and sign the contract!
Consigliamo di iniziare a cercare una sistemazione prima del trasferimento a Roma o Milano, prenotando un incontro con l’agenzia StuRent per visitare la casa prescelta già il primo giorno in città.

Recommended areas to look for accommodation
When looking for a home, it is important to first evaluate the subway and bus connections that lead to Saint Louis.
Saint Louis is very well connected through the subway system and is very central. The nearest metro station is on the subway B line and is called "Cavour". It is also quite easy to reach us by trains and buses that arrive at the central station "Termini", just one metro stop from "Cavour".
Many students enrolled in the various universities of Rome choose "Piazza Bologna" as their neighborhood, as it is cute, young and close to the B metro station "Bologna", just 4 stops from the "Cavour" metro. But all the areas of Rome connected by metro B can be a good choice.
There are also many accommodation options connected with metro line A such as: Numidio Quadrato, Lucio Sestio, Giulio Agricola, Re di Roma. These are all very popular areas among students, since you can find housing opportunities with low rental costs. The same goes for the more fashionable neighborhoods such as San Lorenzo and Pigneto, but beware of the connections with these two areas!
We recommend to be flexible in your requests and expectations, and also to evaluate the possibility of a shared room for the first times, being more available and cheap than the individual ones.
