Accommodation - Erasmus+ for Studies and SEMP

All students are required to fill in an Accommodation form, even if they choose for private housing. In order to complete the Accommodation form, first you must register in ESU portal first, then access the reserved area and click on "SASSA Accommodation form".

Padova has a large student population: finding accommodation once the academic year has started is very difficult. Students’ halls of residence (both those run by private companies and those run by ESU, the regional authority) cannot satisfy all the requests they receive.
Therefore, those who wish to address the SASSA Service to find accommodation are strongly advised to apply well in advance, keeping in mind that the number of single rooms is in any case very limited.
