Find accommodation with the Housing Office

Are you looking for accommodation in the private sector? Why not contact the Housing Office? From this year, the housing service is managed by a house agency company, Immuni Srl, which works under the Sturent brand and has years of experience in property management for students and university personnel in various Italian cities. 

How does it work? It’s pretty simple: check out the website and start looking! Everyone at Ca’ Foscari (students, teaching staff and personnel) can use this complete service that helps you identify the most suitable accommodation, organises property viewings, and provides assistance in the writing and registration of leases.

At the moment Sturent is offering over 500 rooms and about a hundred students have already used this service so far.

Study in Venice: an online portal for accommodation in the private sector

Thanks to the Study in Venice network, students and university personnel can use the Venice Apartment Students platform to look for accommodation in the private sector. You can see photos, the monthly rent, the availability and all the contract details that the property owner shares online. Through the platform, users can contact the property owner directly in order to ask for information or to organise a viewing.


All the information is available at the Housing and canteens page.
