Student life is not just about study. It is also about meeting new people, discovering new cultures and languages, having fun, and developing skills that will make a positive impact on the world.
Prato offers a range of accommodation options for students, all within walking distance of the Monash Prato Centre. Share a room in a self-contained apartment with other students or in a residence converted from a former textile factory overlooking the hills, or simply book a room in one of the hotels in the city centre.

The city hosts various cultural and social events during the year and you will have the chance to take part in them.
Corteo Storico and Palla Grossa
On 8th September every year the city celebrates its medieval origins with a parade through the streets featuring flag throwers in medieval costume, as well as an historical sporting game called Palla Grossa.
Prato Estate and Cinema in the Castle
Summer in Prato is packed with events: concerts, performances, art and craft markets, and much more. Don't miss the opportunity to watch a film in a 13th century open air castle, Prato's equivalent to 'cinema under the stars'.
Continue your fitness routine during your stay in Prato: play tennis or rugby, swim, or go running or riding along the river - the path will take you up the hills allowing you to enjoy stunning views of the city!
