In-person lectures and classroom seat reservation

Please note:

  • you can book a seat in a classroom for any year of your Bachelor's degree programmes or Master's degree programmes (two-year programme and single-cycle).
  • In order to respect the interpersonal distancing established for health security, the capacity of each classroom has been reduced and the presence of students in the classroom will be organised in different time slots.
  • access in each classroom will be organised based on distancing and tracking.

To book your place correctly you need to know: 

  • the date and time of the lecture you want to attend. Timetables are published in the course catalogue, in the "Attendance" section of each course. Go to the catalogue;
  • the code of the building where the classroom is located. The building code is indicated on the lesson timetable;
  • your student number and Infostud password. If you are not yet enrolled at Sapienza, please read the instructions to obtain your student ID number and password and choose your course. Go to the page;

The Prodigit system enables students with the final digits 00 to 49 or 50 to 99 to reserve a seat in their classroom on alternate weeks. To follow in-person lectures, please refer to the timetable below: check the last two digits of your student number, and find your slot in the classroom.

To access your classroom

  • please save the summary page's receipts or take a screenshot to limit the number of simultaneous accesses to Prodigit that slow down system performance. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • For security reasons, the structure may plan to seat you in order of arrival (and therefore in a different place from the one booked): do not worry, the seat you booked is still guaranteed

Tracking system

To confirm your presence in the classroom, your professor will provide you with a token. Please enter it into Prodigit. Read the instructions (PDF)

Please Note: 

  • If you decide not to attend the booked lecture, please cancel your reservation to give access to a student on the waiting list;
