The "Collegio Quartier Novo" hall of residence is located in the heart of the town of Cremona and was created as a result of the radical restructuring of a building dating back to the 1600s, for years used as Habsburg barracks. The actual naming of the hall of residence testifies the original purpose of the building.


Managed by EDiSU (Ente per il Diritto allo Studio Universitario) of Pavia, the “Collegio Quartier Novo” is a university hall of residence for male and female students. It hosts students enrolled at the University of Pavia, Polytechnic University of Milan, Catholic University of Sacred Heart and University of Brescia attending courses in Cremona. Students can choose single or double/triple rooms and share common spaces such as kitchens and a study area. The fees vary according to students’ means and include all the running costs, excluding food. The hall of residence is open from end September to end July, Christmas holidays excluded. The hall of residence also hosts the Consulta Universitaria (university student association) of Cremona.


The reception service is open Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 1.00 pm and from 2.30 pm to 10.00 pm. Cleaning is provided for the common spaces, whereas cleaning the rooms is the responsibility of the students. Bed linen and bath towels are not provided.
