University residences and apartments  

External students can apply for one of 400 possibilities of accommodation in University residences and apartments by taking part in the competitions open each year from July to the second half of August, provided they meet the merit and income requirements of the competition.

The accommodation is available for 11 months - from 1 October to 30 September - in single or double rooms with bathrooms that vary in the different residences.

Students winning places in the final ranking list are entitled to accommodation at an annual cost of € 2.750 and can renew their application for accommodation in subsequent years, provided they meet the requirements and are up-to-date with accommodation payments.

If accommodation is still available after the first assignment, it will be offered at an annual cost of € 3.850 to students who meet the merit requirements but not the income requirements of the competition.


The minimum requirements for applying for accommodation are:

  • being enrolled or declaring intention to enrol in a full-time programme at the University of Milan
  • being resident in a municipality more than 90 minutes by public transport from the campus where the programme is held
  • not receiving retribution as a permanent employee, single trader or professional
  • not being in debt (unless already concurred).

Application and ranking lists

Application for accommodation is made accessing the University website -> Benefits (Scholarships, Accomodation, Meal) with one's University or registration credentials.

Provisional ranking lists (divided by category: renewals, EU and non-EU students enrolled in the first year of any degree or post-graduate programme at Milan University and students enrolled in later years) will be drawn up after assessment of applicants' entitlement and can be reviewed if any candidate appeals for review of his/her position within 7 days.

Final ranking lists - divided between renewals and new admissions - are generally published before 15 September.
