Accommodation

Prato offers a range of long and short term accommodation options for both students and conference guests, many of which are less than a 10 minute walk from our centre.

Students

Accomodation San Nicolo

You can share a room with other students in a self-contained apartment and experience living together and discovering Prato. Some popular residences for students include Dimora 16, Foresteria San Niccolò, Teatro Magnolfi Nuovo and In Santa Trinità Rooms & Apartments. If you prefer, you can book yourself a room in one of the hotels in the city centre.

Please first contact your faculty to find out if accommodation is included in your program package. Then for further information and to check out facilities, please refer to our local accommodation list.

Homestay program

Would you like to experience everyday life with an Italian family? Students can apply to be hosted and live with a local family. Find out more on our Homestay page.

Conference guests and visitors

We can advise you about your options, and negotiate group bookings and reductions, but you must book directly with your chosen hotel or residence. For further information and to check out facilities, please refer to our local accommodation list. To find out the location of the various accommodation options, please refer to our Prato city map.
