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.


Accomodation Dimora 16

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.
