Living in Venice (Santa Marta)

During the academic year, College students are lodged at Camplus in Santa Marta, located in the city centre of Venice.

Camplus is a university students’ residence opened in 2019, after a urban renewal of early-century warehouses that hosted the old Ca’ Foscari University Department of Chemistry and Science.

Camplus Santa Marta lies in a lively and authentic residential area of Venice, close to the main University headquarters and 15 minutes away from the bus and railway stations. The University theatre of Santa Marta, sport facilities and a large canteen are at a stone’s throw and a farmers’ market comes nearby weekly.

The residence has been designed for community life and offers a number of facilities: a buffet restaurant open 6 days a week, free wi-fi in all areas, several study rooms, communal laundry room, a communal garden and a high-tech and innovative gym. It is much appreciated by university students that can enjoy both entertainment and education.

The reception is open 7 days a week and is always available to residents.

College students are hosted in comfortable studios, either single or double, each furnished with a kitchen corner to prepare their meals. A large and comfortable reading room and a relax room are reserved for College students, to help building their own community.
