Finding accommodation in this Tuscan city can be a bit challenging, but you’ll find two main types of rental apartments for students.

First, there are shared apartments with multiple rooms.These are cost-effective per person and allow you to live with other students from around the world.

Student rooms for rent in Siena

In this Italian city, you can find both single and shared rooms. Single rooms offer more privacy and are usually more expensive, while shared rooms are more affordable and typically shared between two people.

Most rooms come usually furnished with essentials like a bed, desk, and closet for each student. However, keep in mind that many rooms are often in old buildings, can be small, and may have antique furniture. Also, buildings often don’t have elevators, and if they do, the price may be slightly higher. Another thing to note is that bedding may or may not be included in the rent.

Flats for rent in Siena

The city centre is a great place to look for accommodation since it’s where most student leisure and dining spots are located. It’s also well connected and close to several faculties of the University of Siena. The centre features Piazza del Campo, the main square in Siena’s historic centre, where both students and locals gather.

Apartments in Contrada Aquila

Located southwest of Piazza del Campo, this is one of the most central areas. Flats here may be more expensive because of their location and easy access to university faculties and leisure spots.

Rooms for rent in Contrada Oca

This area is also popular among international students because it’s close to the city centre and offers a true local experience.

For example, if you’re going to the San Niccolò University complex, consider areas like the city centre, Contrada Aquila, and Oca. For the Laterino University complex, look in San Prospero, and for the Pian de' Mantellini teaching complex and Presidio Mattioli, we also recommend Contrada Aquila.
