Fees and scholarships

Special rates for international students

In our Residences fees are tailored to your needs; they vary depending on the residence, the city and the services included.

Here you can find all the annual fees, balanced to the real months of stay and reduced up to 40%, depending on geographical origin and the living cost of the destination.

The RUI Foundation promotes students of merit, taking into consideration individual economic situations. This is why we have scholarships covering up to 100% of the full fee.

To become a resident, you need to apply on our portal MyCollege. For details, go to Admissions.

Affiliations with universities

The RUI Foundation has been collaborating for the past 60 years with numerous universities to foster our students’ education, talents and professional future.

We are affiliated with major universities in Italy that provide students of merit with financial aid for our fee.

The Politecnico and the RUI Foundation award financial aid to ten students.

Ten places in the residences are awarded at a reduced rate to the most deserving Italian and international students in their first year at the Politecnico during the academic year 2024/2025. They are allotted based on the admission test at Politecnico and on the RUI residence admission test. The award is €1,000.

Thanks to the agreement between RUI Foundation and Campus Biomedico, scholarships covering up to 50% of the annual fee are available for international students regularly enrolled to this university.

The amount of the scholarship depends on the country of origin.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of university entrance exam and admission test results.
