Free accommodation in a Bocconi Residence Hall

Bocconi University is committed to making our superior level of higher education available to outstanding students. Awards provide recipients with valuable financial support, ensuring students can enjoy the benefits of a top-quality academic experience regardless of their financial situation. Merit Awards will be made available to first-year Undergraduate applicants for the 2020-2021 academic year based on their academic standing.

International students applying for admission during the Early, Winter or Spring Sessions will be taken into consideration for merit-based financial aid.

The Merit Award includes a full tuition waiver, worth up to approximately € 12,000 per year.
A limited number of students may also be assigned free accommodation in one of the Bocconi Residence Halls. 

Academic profiles considered to be amongst the top applicants will be considered for merit-based financial aid based on the admissions application submitted to Bocconi University. A separate application is not required. The evaluation will primarily be based on the candidate’s academic achievement. In addition to academic achievement, the complete dossier provided to the Admissions Office will be evaluated. The selection of awardees will be carried out by a Committee, nominated by the Rector, including the Dean of the Undergraduate School and the Dean for International Affairs, whose decisions about numbers, amounts and recipients are final and cannot be appealed.

The assignment of an award will be communicated to awarded students together with admission results and with a separate and more detailed email by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office.


Awarded students will need to follow the procedure indicated in the email they will receive by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office soon after the publication of admission results and therefore complete the online scholarship acceptance procedure by the enrollment deadline.

The scholarship acceptance procedure can be accessed only after completing the enrollment procedure.

The Merit Award will be automatically renewed for a maximum of 2 times, provided the required academic progress is met, as also specified in the online scholarship acceptance procedure. 

The Merit Award will be renewed for:

  • the second year (AY 2021-2022) provided the awardee earns at least 49 credits as of 10 August 2021
  • the third year (AY 2022-2023) provided the awardee earns at least 95 credits as of 10 August 2022.

Students will automatically lose the award if:

  • verifications carried out by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office reveal false declarations made by the student for the assignment of the award: the revocation shall take effect starting from the moment in which the illicit behavior took place and shall entail the full payment of due tuition and fees - and housing fees, if the merit award included free accommodation - starting from the academic year in which the student benefited from the waiver following false declarations (articles 71 and 75 of Italian D.P.R. 445/2000);
  • they receive disciplinary sanctions imposed by Bocconi University: disciplinary sanctions imposed by Bocconi University will result in a revocation of the benefit starting from the day the disciplinary sanction is imposed. Students whose award is revoked will be required to pay any tuition and fees - and housing,
    if the merit award included free accommodation - installments that may still be due at the date of the revocation, according to the official deadlines defined by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office.
