Biomedical Univesity Residence

Opened in July 2010, the Biomedical University Residence, a new concept of university accommodation, is located on the Pavia biomedical campus and aims to provide a highly valid cultural and educational environment.
Who the residence is for
The Residence is for students of all backgrounds who, having already completed a three-year degree course, intend to follow specialist courses, further degree s degree courses, or PhD programmes, primarily in the biomedical field, at the University of Pavia.
Life in the Residence
Students living in the Residence experience a truly international environment. In addition to the Group of students from the University of Pavia admitted the Residence following an interview-based selection procedure, the Residence hosts many international guests such as young researchers, Erasmus students and graduate students who come to study or participate in research projects at the University of Pavia. One of the particular activities of the Residence is to organise cultural events not only for the academic community, but also for the city of Pavia. The Residence aims to be a place where professionals, students and young professionals in training can meet, learn from each other, and exchange experiences.
How places are allocated
Admission to the Residence is subject to qualifications and an interview with the candidate. Successful applicants retain their place at the Residence for the duration of their university studies, provided they obtain the necessary annual confirmation based on their fulfilment of the relevant academic requirements. For students doing regular master’s degree courses this corresponds to the acquisition of no less than three quarters of the year’s credits by the end of September, with an average mark of no less than 27/30 and a mark of at least 24/30 in every single exam. Instead, students doing singlecycle (five-year) master’s degree courses must have completed the year’s exams by the end of February, obtaining an average mark of at least 27/30 and at least 24/30 in each individual examination.
Facilities Provided
The Residence is located in a new building in the heart of the Polo Cravino complex, just a short walk from the University’s main scientific departments. It has 50 rooms including two double rooms. Students are accommodated in single rooms, each with en suite facilities, air conditioning, free internet access and a weekly cleaning service. Each unit of six rooms has a fully equipped kitchen. Students are provided with emergency medical assistance and have full access to all the communal areas in the Residence (chapel, study room, library, computer room, music room, TV room, games room, newspaper library, gym, garden), as well as to the coin-operated washing machines.
