Furthermore, the University has joined the international Housing Anywhere platform, which allows incoming students to find and book a room offered by our students. Our outgoing students will also have the opportunity to rent rooms made available by foreign students enrolled at universities affiliated with the same platform.

The Department of Humanities and Cultural Heritage organizes free Italian language courses for mobility students. Recently, "specialized" Italian courses have also been activated for foreign students and PhD students enrolled at the Vanvitelli University who have requested them.

The following initiatives have been set up to increase integration between the Italian and foreign students both enrolled in degree and/or in mobility programmes of the Vanvitelli University:

Buddy Project

The call for applications is online for 41 part-time contracts for tutoring lasting 50, 100 or 200 hours for students regularly enrolled in the academic year 18/19 with adequate language skills to create a reception and assistance system for international students who enrol in a Degree Programme or stay for a period of mobility within the University.

Buddy Abroad
The project aims to create a network of students at foreign universities interested at being of help for our students who will be able to contact them and receive information on the activities of their university and in particular on programmes, reception, university and extra-university activities. Interested incoming students available to become Buddy Abroad will be selected and a Buddy Abroad certificate will be issued.

A database and a mailing list will also be created to send any notices that may be of interest such as doctorates and scholarships or research grants.

Mobile App
The call for applications "App Welcome International Students" is online to involve students in the software development of an app for mobile devices.

First Medical Care
This last project consists in the creation of a reception point for the health issues of international students enrolled in university study courses or that are here for mobility periods.

There is a first free clinical examination with the detection of a possible specialised pathway following an agreement with the University Hospital.

The activities will take place in the Sant’Andrea delle Dame complex - Naples - ground floor, with access from Via De Crecchio n.8.
