How It Works
Comforts of Home housing is available both to exchange students who are looking for housing independently, and to students coming to Florence through organized study programs who work with COH. We provide everything you need for a comfortable, easy stay: fully-furnished apartments with everything included in the price: internet, utilities, renters' insurance, local taxes, on-call maintenance service, and more. We also have a 24/7 emergency line so you can reach us in any urgent situation, even if our office is closed.
If you're a student or intern looking for housing in Florence on your own, you can start the process by sending a booking request. (If you received a school-specific reservation link through your university, please register there directly!) All-inclusive prices for independently-registering residents start at 630 euros per month.
Students living with COH through our institutional partners will be placed in apartments according to the specific needs of their program, and in most cases will not need to register with COH directly. If you are a faculty member or other organizer of a university, study abroad, or study-travel program and would like to learn more about housing your group(s) in our apartments, please contact us.
What Comes Next?
If you are reserving your housing with us on your own, we'll send you a price quote based on your housing dates and preferences. We'll ask you for a little more information about yourself to help us in the housing process, and will send you an email explaining how to make your first payment. Once you make your first payment, your reservation will be confirmed!
Next, we'll send you a Housing Preferences Survey to fill out (we'll send this to you several weeks before your arrival). We use this to match you to apartment-mates who are right for you. We make every effort to take your preferences into account and match you with someone with whom you'll have a good stay. We'll send you your apartment assignments and apartment-mate contacts at least two weeks before check-in.
When you arrive, you'll come to COH's office for a brief orientation where we'll give you your keys and apartment entrance information. Then you'll be off to your new home in Florence!
