The Paolina Paulon Language Centre helps students to find accommodation in private apartments shared with other Chinese students from the Language Centre (upon request from the student). In Vicenza and in Mestre, the apartments are located within walking distance or by public transport from the Language Centre and have double or single rooms depending on the needs and requests of each student and the availability of the apartments.
Our tutors, together with the owners of the apartments, are responsible for explaining the rules and the contract of each apartment and are available to answer any doubts or requests.
In order to take advantage of this service, we kindly ask students to inform us of their room (single or double) and tenants preferences by September 15th.
The Language Centre will do its best to satisfy everyone’s requests.
The allocation of the available rooms will follow the order of the preferences received.
Once the single rooms have all been assigned (limited number), only double rooms will be assigned.
The apartment rules will be sent to the students. The rules must be followed and respected.
