Student feedback

The interview with the Housing Office was very pleasant and I was helped to settle in and adjust to a completely new environment, as studying at university is. I was given useful information and quickly found my way around the various offices. The staff was welcoming and helped me widen my horizons further still. I can only say very good things about the whole service offered by you.

I would like to thank the Housing Office. It's really great that Ca' Foscari has such a office to help the exchange students. The work you do makes the exchange proccess a lot more easier to us, and your treatment give us a sense of being welcome and secured. So thank you!
