Please keep in mind you MUST arrive in Florence on January 24, 2017, preferably in the morning, and you are responsible for booking your own flight. Housing is available only for the dates of the program (January 24, 2017 – May 12, 2017) so if you plan to arrive early or leave late, please be aware you will be responsible for your own accommodations. Also also note that arriving early or leaving late may have immigration implications, depending on your citizenship. It is your responsibility to investigate this before you book your flights. You can access the program calendar here.
We encourage students to check in at the NYU Florence campus during the morning hours of January 24, 2017. There will be shuttle service from the Florence Peretola airport to campus between 9am and 5pm on January 24th only. Students who arrive beyond these hours or at other airports or at train stations are responsible for their own transportation to the NYU Florence campus and then from the campus to their living situations.
Detailed arrival instructions will be provided before departure, including late check-in instructions, information about where to find staff at the airport and important phone numbers to have before the semester starts.
When shopping for flights, you are welcome to use any provider of your choice, but we encourage you to use NYU’s preferred partner, Egencia, to buy your ticket. Please see the following egencia instructions for info on how to book your flight through Egencia.
Please note: All students will be required to submit their flight details closer to departure. Instructions for doing so will come later on in the semester
