In the university you can's practise to much. The better moment to do it going out to get fun with some other international students and in the university's restaurant

Final comments
This is the worst city in Italy that I've known (I knew 12 in 1998). But the university is good. To study and learn is a excelent option.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Because we have some single rooms completely independent. Usually people has different habits and cultures. Maybe respect is not easy to find everywhere. So if you have conditions to study hard and have fun is perfect. People in the city town appartments are often living there from years. So thinks that have more facilities than you. Maybe in the campus, where there is not an "appartment owner", the rights and duties will be more equal. A foreigner when arrived in Turim has no many options to make up your mind.

Now I'm better after changed house 4 times in 1 year. My first choose was the international hostel (Politecnico doesn't have places to his students - Awful!!!!). I've be there for 1 month trying to find some appartments. My second place was the cheapest room that I've find. But it was not so much comfortable 5 persons in a 2 rooms flat (was awful as well ). So, after 9 months, my father has a better economical situation and I changed that accomodation for a room in a family's house. There was amazing, but the contract was only for 3 months. So, at the moment I'm in a student's residence, and it's a cool place, it's my 1 week there, so maybe would be better hold on more time to make a more accurate analysis.
