Services to Students

HEALTH CARE

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE - SSN (SERVIZIO SANITARIO NAZIONALE)


Italy has a public health system called the Servizio Sanitario Nazionale - SSN (National Health Service). The service will provide basic care, intervention in case of emergency, diagnostic and specialist services, hospitalization, pharmaceutical care. EU citizens enjoy the same level of treatment enjoyed by Italian citizens. Non-EU citizens instead need a valid health insurance to get an entry visa for Italy.

To students from outside the EU, as well as all non-EU students of the Department, we recommend to register for the Servizio Sanitario Nazionale (SSN). Registration to the SSN (€ 149.77 per year) allows citizens of non-European countries to enjoy all the health services guaranteed to EU citizens.
In this section, students will find information and advice in the field of Health Care in Italy:

TRANSPORT NETWORK

PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN ROME 


Public transport is probably the best way for students to get around Rome.

Students below the age of 26 may benefit from an additional discount if they are winner of the Laziodisu scholarship. Single fare tickets are available for purchase only in certain places throughout the city. Students who prefer to purchase single fare tickets should be aware that tickets are not sold on buses or trams and must be purchased beforehand. Tickets may usually be purchased at tobacco shops, newsagents. All tickets must be validated before boarding trains, buses and the underground.

The Rome underground transport system, simply called la metropolitana by Italians, has trains which run approximately every 3-5 minutes, from 5:30am until 11:30pm every day (until 1:30am on Saturdays). Tickets can be purchased in newsstands, tobacco shops, or through vending machines at the underground stations. Each underground ticket costs € 1,50 for 100 minutes and a on-way journey. The annual public transport pass costs €250 and is valid for 365 days, from the day you first use it. You can purchase the annual pass at the main metro stations (for example Anagnina, Lepanto, Ottaviano and EUR Fermi); a passport–sized photo is needed and students will be asked to fill in a form. The monthly pass costs €35 and can be purchased in most tobacco shops or at the metro stations.
