Residence certificate for EEA and EU students

According to decree nr. 30 of February 6th 2007 (regarding the "Application of the Directive 2004/38/CE about the right of EU citizens and their relatives to circulate and reside freely in member states) which took effect from April 11th 2007, Students from European Economic Area (EEA) and European Union (EU) countries are allowed to move without restrictions throughout Italy without applying for a stay permit.

Therefore, if your study period in Italy is longer than 3 months and does not exceed 12 months, you have to register in the "Registro temporaneo dei cittadini EU" at the General Registry Office "Anagrafe" in your Municipality.

If your study period in Italy is longer than 12 months, you have to register at the "Anagrafe della popolazione residente" at the General Registry Office "Anagrafe" in your Municipality, which will imply the change of your permanent address ("residenza") from your country to Italy.

  • passport or identity card;
  • a photocopy of your EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) or private health insurance;
  • proof of registration at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (from the "Segreteria Studenti" Registrar's Office of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia)
  • "Dichiarazione di ospitalit√†" (residence agreement) from the University Residence Hall or a photocopy of the "contratto di locazione" (lease contract) in the case of private accommodation;
  • documented proof that you have sufficient funds to cover living expenses (e.g. photocopy of bank statements, grants, scholarships, financial support from your family)
