UniversitÓ di Bologna

University of Bologna, Via Zamboni 33, 40126 Bologna, Italy
3.97 / 5 based on 348 reviews.
Description:
The University of Bologna is about to celebrate its Ninth Centenary. The Studium at Bologna is thus the oldest in the western world.

The whole history of European universities has been profoundly influenced throughout the centuries by the University of Bologna. Evidence of this may be seen in the fact that many of the most important universities in Europe were established as a result of internal strife within the University of Bologna, or under the auspices of scholars from this University.

When travelling in Italy, skip the north. The south is much more fun. Read Review

STUDENT LIFE

Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Activities: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
My campus was located in a small and somewhat dull city called ForlÝ, where the best 'club' was a sort of cultural centre named Arci; cheap drinks, easy-going people and good rock. As for Bologna itself, I can recommend Contavalli, where I knew the owner. Ask for a drink called 'Pompa idraulico'.

EXPENSES    
by Vasiliki, Technologiko Ekpedeftiko Idrima Serron, Serres, Greece
Business Studies, Erasmus
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Family
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Housing is about 50% more expensive in Italy than in Greece, food also (even though i was eating more--maybe because of the cultural shock or the extreme cold). Nightlife in Italy is normal for european standards. It is just Greece that has the most expensive one. Travelling inside Italy was a piece of cake. Cheap trains and buses unlike Greece :(
Food, Overall, Housing: was more expensive than at home.
Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Travel, Nightlife: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
I am not the "saving" kind of girl, so if there are any tips you could tell me, please do!
