TELEPHONE and WI-FI

The most convenient way to keep in touch with your new Italian friends and family back home is buying an Italian SIM card at cell phone providers such as TIM, 3, Vodafone or Wind. Only triband and quadband phones will work in Europe. Check with your home cell phone service provider to find out if your current cell phone (once unlocked) can support an international SIM card. Once in Italy, you may look into signing up for a plan or simply getting pre-paid/rechargeable service. If you do not have a GSM phone purchased at home you may also buy one at a reasonable cost once in Italy. Mobile phones shops also provide internet connection plans.

In campus you will benefit from our wi-fi connection.
