You’ll have a choice of staying in student apartments or family homestays in Lecce. Please also see the main Italy housing information.

Student Apartments

All student apartments are located near the university and city center of Lecce. You may share apartments with other Arcadia University students or international and Italian students by request. All apartments are furnished, include private bathrooms and have fully-stocked kitchens. Kitchens will have a stove, refrigerator, cabinet space and sink. All apartments are pre-screened by members of the Lecce staff for cleanliness, safety, comfort and accessibility.  Although Italian apartments have no air conditioning, proper ventilation and stone construction go far in alleviating much of the summer heat.

Family Stay

You may choose to live with an Italian family throughout your period of study in Lecce. Arcadia University works closely with the University of Salento to place students in carefully screened homes. You will be provided with three meals daily as well as all necessary linens.
