Casa UNIME programme

The “Casa Unime” programme is an innovative initiative  that assists qualified students who live out of Messina with their rent payment.  UniME  distributed 1.8 million euros over the last three years for this purpose.

Students residing in other municipalities in Italy and abroad who have a registered 10 month (or more) rental contract in the Municipality of Messina may apply. Every year, UniME awards 350,000 euros to students who qualify.

The winners will receive reimbursement of up to a maximum of 2,000 euros for their rent per year, on the basis of the personal / family income.
