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.

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 ;)
