Here are some general rules, tips, and expectations to help you become accustomed to your stay!


  • You should lock your room door at all times. Also, when leaving , make sure the windows are closed and locked. Neither the university/study abroad company nor the hotel/hostel will be responsible for any stolen items.
  • You are responsible for any room keys you are given. If a locksmith has to open your door or you incur any lost key charages, you will have to pay for these fees.
  • It is strictly forbidden to throw any object or substance from windows, balconies, terraces or roofs. This includes keys, cigarette butts or anything else big or small.

Alcohol and Drug Policies:

  • Please observe your college’s drug and alcohol policy during the duration of the program.
  • In Italy, the legal drinking age is 18.
  • Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the hotel.
  • The consumption of drugs, as well as keeping or dealing with them, is absolutely prohibited.
  • The Italian law defines “narcotic drugs” as including cannabis, coca leaves, opium, their derivatives, synthetic opiates, and certain psycho-tropic substances. For the illegal use, possession, manufacture, importation, exportation, or trafficking of any of the listed drugs, the penalty is three to eight years in prison and a large fine.

Financial Liability:

  • You will have to pay for any damage done to the room (doors, walls, floors, furniture, etc.).
