*The University of Foggia is not equipped with a Campus; students may look for a flat to
share with other students. Up to last year the University of Foggia covered the costs of stay
for all incoming students. Students were hosted at Pia Fondazione Scillitani in Foggia.
Accomodation costs are about 200,00 euros for a single room in a flat.
The cost of living is not quite expensive; except accommodation students live with about
300,00 euros for month.
