Campus and University Colleges
The University of Pavia has the most estensive Colleges and Residence Hall system in Italy.
The majority of its students are housed in its 16 Colleges. The most ancient ones date back to 1564 (Collegio Borromeo) and 1567 (Collegio Ghislieri), while the two most recent ones (Collegio Maino and CollegioVolta) were founded in 2000.
Colleges and Residence Halls are either male or female, catered or self-catered (with kitchens on each floor for student use). Most of them admit both undergraduate and graduate students and places are offered for the academic year except for Christmas and Easter vacations.
Although all Residence Halls are bound by University Statutes, each of them has its own funding status. Some have an independent status and the majority of the Halls receive support from the regional educational authority.
The students of University of Pavia are not obliged to be members of any College or Residence Hall in order to gain admission to the university. The procedures for admission for Residence Halls can be found on the EDiSU website.
Erasmus students are adviced to contact the Erasmus office and exchange students are adviced to contact the International Office. Special housing agencies like (see the section on Accommodation for Exchange Students below) or announcements posted on the university bulletin boards can be alternative solutions.
