This is our first residence hall, opened in 1998, near to the oldest University in Europe, Alma Mater Studiorum. A mix of history and innovation, the building is located within a park, and a short walk from the historic centre and the university campus. It houses 150 students in single and double rooms with private bathrooms. The residence hall offers many common spaces for studying (3 study rooms, 3 tutoring rooms, and a library with a periodicals section), activities (a workshop room, a conference room, and a computer room), sport (a gym and a football field), and free time (a media room, a music room, a rec room, and a TV room). The music room, in particular, was born from desires and needs expressed by the students themselves.
