We fully understand how important it is for our students to stay in comfortable and friendly accommodation. We want you to be happy where you are living, so you can study well and enjoy your stay. This is why, on request, ARCA offers a free-of-charge accommodation booking service for the duration of the language course.

When you book your course, please indicate the type of accommodation you prefer and we will be glad to arrange it for you. The options are: home-stay (including breakfast/half board; or with use of kitchen), independent apartment, B&B, hotel.

Our range of accommodation is carefully selected and monitored in order to meet the needs and expectations of our students. The accommodation is available to you from the Sunday before beginning of course until the Saturday morning following the end of the course.

If you choose the home-stay option (with families or single persons), we will be pleased to confirm your booking as soon as possible and then send the accommodation details at least 7 days before the course starting date. We highly recommend this type of arrangement, as it provides further opportunities for practicing the language outside the school and a unique insight into the Italian way of life.

The apartments are in the old city centre or in areas easily reached by public transport (max. 15-20 minutes by bus from school). Arrivals are on Sundays and departures on Saturdays. Any extra days must be agreed upon in advance and will be charged based on the weekly rate.

Since Bologna is an important trade-fair centre, it is advisable to enquire in good time, so that we can book your accommodation at least a month in advance in periods when trade-fairs are being held. Payment is made directly to the owner on arrival for the total cost of the accommodation.

Should you decide to cancel the course (except in case of real emergency), you must inform the owner of your accommodation at least two weeks in advance. No reimbursement can be made by the school in the case of late arrival.

Double rooms can be booked only by 2 students booking together and staying for the same  length of time.
