Additional admission requirement: Students applying for the Master in Eco-Social Design must submit their portfolio as an additional admission requirement. Students will only be admitted after a positive evaluation of the portfolio.

2. Accommodation

We offer accommodation in two different residence halls in Bozen-Bolzano in single or double rooms (according to availability) for roughly 250-300 € monthly. Non-EU bilateral agreement exchange students will be granted accommodation. Please note that all contracts for residence halls require a 5 month commitment for one semester and 10 months for a whole academic year. If you intend to stay less, you will need to pay for the entire contract period. For private accommodations, you can have a look at our blog.
