General information about students residences (Collegi)
Pavia's collegiate system, unique in Italy, consists of 20 residences, hosting approximately 2000 students.
There are three types of students residences in Pavia:
  • Collegi managed by EDiSU (Ente per il Diritto allo Studio Universitario);
  • ‘Merit-based’ collegi;
  • Privatly owned collegi.
All of them can be defined as ‘Integrated Service Systems’ and can be considered as the ideal solution to meet the requirements of education right at University level.
Besides accommodation service, they offer facilities and tools for teaching, leisure and education purposes by arranging cultural activities that enhance the educational experience of students.
Living in a collegio offers the opportunity to belong to a community where academic achievement, traditional events, parties, and sporting rivalries all play key roles.

Then, to maintain the assigned room, each year the students have to respect the high academic performance requirement of an average annual grade not less than 27/30.
The cost of the accommodation is largely supported by the Collegio, since the students are only asked for a contribution proportionate to family income and many rooms are completely free.
