Finding accomodation in Bologna could be not easy. Here we have not a big campus with rooms provided by the University:  you can check some student-houses but, usually, there are not many free rooms, so you will probably have to find your room on your own in the maze of the city center.

Combo Bologna is a hostel located just a few steps away from the central station of Bologna.

It offers accommodation in two bed rooms with en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and Wi-Fi connection. Other facilities for guests include a coffee bar, a communal kitchen, a laundrette, a TV room, a lounge and a spacious outdoor garden which, in the summer months, hosts numerous events open to the public, such as live concerts and DJ-sets. The reception is open 24/7 and the young multilingual staff will supply you with full information on the unmissable events taking place in the city and Bologna’s most interesting tourist attractions. Breakfast is available from 7:00 to 10:00.

We also offer a free left-luggage service when you check in and check out. Combo Bologna is located at a 10-minute walking distance from the station and 25 minutes from Piazza Maggiore. At 300 m from the hostel, there is a bus stop.

Prices for a single room are around 300-450 euro; usually a bed in a shared room (Posto Letto) is for 200 - 350 euro. We know it is very important for you to find a good room as soon as possible, but we suggest you to take your time to understand which is the right room for you.
Try to visit at least 10-15 houses and remember that, if you choose a room outside the city center, you will save money, but it will be more complicate for you to enjoy the student life that takes place in the center at night!
When you find the room you will be asked to give a "CAPARRA" (deposit). Usually you have to pay in advance 1 or 2 months that are given back at the end of your staying.
Very important: when you pay the "caparra", ask for a receipt or pay by bank transaction, as evidence of your payment. Do the same when you have to pay the monthly rent, in the future you could always have problems with the owner of the flat.
As you can understand, the room-quest might take some days so it is good to book a cheap place to stay until you don't find your own one. You might check some free-hosting website like HospitalityClubCouchSurfing or the new BeWelcome. Bologna's hostel is quite far from the city center, but try this Ostello Bologna and remember to book because it is usually full of erasmus students looking for a flat ;)
Come on, good luck! The first chapter of the erasmus experience is always this one ;)
