What happens to the deposit I have already paid for my flat if I can no longer come to the EUI due to the circumstances?
All newcomers having booked an EUI Flat between March and September 2020 and having to cancel their reservation due to force majeure will receive their deposit back.
All newcomers having booked a flat between March and September 2020 on the private market through the EUI concessionaire “Florence Housing Services Real Estate Agency” (FHS) and having to cancel their reservation due to force majeure will receive the best possible assistance by FHS staff in negotiating the eventual refund of the booking deposit.
For those who decide not to use FHS services, please be informed that no assistance can be provided by the EUI in case the landlord refuses to return the deposit.

Will I be covered by a health insurance from the start of the Academic Year?
All students, researchers and post-doctoral fellows must have adequate medical insurance for the duration of their stay at the EUI.

I am enrolled in the health insurance plan offered by the EUI but I cannot be in Florence at the beginning of the Academic Year for reasons of force majeure. Is my health insurance coverage still valid?

Please note that if you cannot travel to Italy for reasons of force majeure you should promptly inform the office in charge of your programme:
