Housing Group and other suggestions 

As ESN Ferrara, we provide a Facebook Housing group for all the incoming international students who are looking for a room in Ferrara. The target of this group is to help out Erasmus or International students who are about to come to Ferrara (and need to find a room) or those who want to leave their announcement cause the departure is approaching, and need to find someone else to replace them! 

To join our Housing Group on FB just click here

Besides our group, on facebook you can also find other suggestions at this group

There are then many websites as: www.kijiji.itwww.bakeca.itwww.easystanza.it.

P.S: Actually, as every year, we know that many of you guys will be staying in Ferrara only for the fall semester, but NO WORRIES, cause there is a solution: the best thing, what we actually advice you all, is to sign up a contract for 1 year, but first (IMPORTANT❗), talk to the owner if he/she gonna accept someone else to replace you at the end of your stay. If so, we will help you out to find someone else!
So don't worry if you're asked to sign up a contract for 1 year, cause usually it works this way, but it's really important that you guys talk to the landlord as soon as possible, in order to deal everything with him.
