Activities and Opportunities
*Housing is not included in the Program cost.
HOUSING OPTIONS OFFERED THROUGH LDM: Single or Double Bedroom in a Student Apartment
LdM is pleased to facilitate students in making their housing arrangements for a spot in a student apartment. Most apartments have two or three bedrooms. A very limited number have only one bedroom, and some may have more than three bedrooms. Internet service is available.
4 to 6 (or more) students generally share an apartment.
In a double bedroom two students share the bedroom.
In a single bedroom, the student has his/her own bedroom.
In all cases students share the apartment with several other students.
Apartments are furnished and equipped with: bed linens, basic pots and pans, kitchen utensils, washing machine and TV. Highspeed internet is available in the apartments. Towels are generally not included in the apartment and we recommend students to bring their own set of towels to Italy with them. Students can bring a few towels (not many) and buy them in Italy.
The student shared apartments are usually suitable for minimum of 2 to a maximum of 8 persons.
They are not all located in the same building, but within walking distance from the school facilities.
Although apartments are of the same standard and have similar facilities, no two apartments are alike.
*For housing arranged by LdM, the housing coordinator in Florence assigns roommates based on the completed housing profile. Students can request to room with a student they already know as long as both students make that request.
The cost per person is:
Double bedroom: U.S. $ 1,000
Single bedroom: U.S. $ 1,200

“I would definitely recommend this program to other for the great experience I had. The city is wonderful and the teachers and faculty are very helpful. I had a great time getting to know everyone. My program and trip were wonderful because of my class experience.”
- Emilee Simpson
“I had a wonderful time and almost didn’t want to leave the program. The professors were wonderfully informed, the content in the classes was fascinating and everyone took an interest in me and my needs. I highly recommend study abroad, but insist that it be must be for a semester. I learned a lot about the language, the culture and the people.”
- Michael Grasso
