Collegi associated with the University of Pavia, but managed and administered
privately. Admission is managed independently by each collegioditor1">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:
• ‘merit based’ collegi;
• collegi managed by EdiSU (Ente per il Diritto allo Studio Universitario)
• privately owned ones
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.

Merit-based colleges
Studying in a collegio of merit means having high-level facilities available, designed to support the whole university career and favoring a rapid and qualified entry into the world of work
These collegi offer: internal courses, tutoring, international mobility programs, continuous cultural events, but also recreational and socializing activities.
In order to be admitted to a board of merit collegio it is necessary to participate in a competition (a written test and two oral tests) which takes place in September. The cost of maintenance is in largely supported by the Collegio since pupils are asked only a proportionate contribution to family income and many seats are completely free.
It is then necessary to confirm annually the right to maintain the place in the College, respecting the high academic performance requirements that provide for an average grade annual not less than 27/30.
There are 4 merit- based collegi in Pavia:
Almo Collegio Borromeo
