I am moving to Bologna next month and will be house hunting between 19 August and 22 August. The school I will be attending has an arrangement with a landlord who owns many apartment buildings near the school (Johns Hopkins) so I am not too worried about finding something, but I would like to see what else is out there. This may be a long shot, but is anyone looking for a flatmate to take a furnished room for around 9 months? That is, from mid-August through May Protected content ? I am not entirely sure what my plans will be after the school year, but I do not speak Italian so I doubt I will be able to find anything in Bologna. I can definitely commit to those 9 months though.
