Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? The appartment I lived in was close to university, but quite far away for the center of the city. I would like to find another place closer to the center, to be able to meet more people.
Personal comments:
The accomodation was good. I wa very clean, with a lot of facilities. I was very good to live in. The neighberhood was very quiet though, and quite far away from the center.

Regarding the previous field, as I have not done any exam yet, I cannot fulfill the requests properly. Regarding academic life...it is always difficult to implement "Bologne", like in Barcelona.
