When students complete the application form to enrol with the University of Pavia, they will be given a chance to select the period they intend to stay in Pavia. Centro Assistenza Studenti strongly recommends checking with Erasmus co-ordinators which period is more advisable to select, considering that the calendar of each faculty is different. Centro Assistenza Studenti will provide accommodation for the periods selected in the application form. If a student arrives earlier than the date selected in the application form, accommodation cannot be guaranteed for those days; if a student leaves his/her accommodation before the date selected in the application form, he/she will still have to pay the rent for the whole period.

Students who are accommodated in Collegi, Green Campus or Campus Residence are asked to go directly to their collegio and collect the key of their room at the reception. Students can reach the collegi either by taxi or by bus.
Students who are accommodated in private flats will be welcomed by the staff of Centro Assistenza Studenti, either at the train/bus station in Pavia, or will be given instructions about a meeting point. The staff of Centro Assistenza Studenti will then take the students to their accommodation.
Students who land at Linate airport will find a bus connection that takes them directly to Pavia. The company that runs the service is called MIGLIAVACCA, and the bus stop is just outside the airport. Look at the website:
