I wish I had known...
Make sure you have a student visa and if possible, that the Uni. is aware of the exchange program with your university. It would have helped to have a contact person at the university.

Personal recommendation
Very strongly, but mainly for the experience of living in Florence, not for the university 'spirit'. It's a multi-campus place so there's no real central meeting ground within the uni.

See as much of Italy as you can while you're there. See if you can work your timetable so you have a day or so off a week to do this.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
The experience is very positive. Not only you get involved within the local culture, but also your language level (in my case italian) benefits so much.

Personal comments
The university offered some help in trying to find a place in one of the few residences in Florence. Fortunately I found my own and I didn't use its help.
