Please note that:

  • 3rd year Bocconi students a.y. 2020-21
    Students enrolled in the 3rd year of a Bocconi Bachelor of Science program in a.y. 2020-21 that enroll in the first year of a Bocconi Master of Science program in a.y 2021-22, the housing renewal is not subject to merit requirements
  • Bonus
    In order to reach the minimum merit requirements needed, in addition to the credits already earned, all students, except first-year students, may use a bonus, as indicated below:
    • If students have never used a bonus previously, they can request bonus credits as indicated in the table above. Once students use bonus credits they no longer have the right to accrue other bonus credits.
    • Once students use bonus credits, they still have the possibility to use any residual credits in future years.
    • Students enrolled in Master of Science programs can use any residual bonus credits not used during their Bachelor of Science program. If they never used bonus credits during their Bachelor of Science program, they may use up to 15 credits.
  • Calculation of credits
    The number of credits needed to access the ranking will be calculated based on the credits required for each past academic year, starting with the absolute first-year of enrollment[1]. This rule also applies to anyone who has interrupted the normal progression of the attended years of the program (e.g. students who repeat or have repeated the enrollment in a program year already attended, also after having withdrawn from studies or having transferred from other Universities or faculties, or for other interruptions), unless for “temporary interruptions”.
  • Course change
    For program changes, for calculating merit, only credits valid for the study program for which the benefit is requested or for the Bachelor of Science, Master of Science or Integrated Master program in which the student is enrolled in the 2021-2022 a.y. will be considered.
  • Students with disability
    Merit criteria for students with disabilities equal to or greater than 66% may diverge up to a maximum of 40% from the criteria set out in the Regulations. As an exception, these students may renew their housing even if enrolled for the first time fuori corso for a.y. 2021-22.
  • PhD program
    PhD students who meet the economic requirements can apply for housing renewal or new admission for a.y. 2021-22 if they have been regularly admitted for a.y. 2021-22.


Students are responsible for checking that the credits obtained are actually registered by 10 August 2021 and for enrolling in the academic year by the deadlines set and communicated by the Academic Services. Anyone who does not meet the conditions described above after a verification completed by the Office, will lose their housing assignment; students who have already checked-in must leave the housing on the day after the notification received by the Office, and in any case by  and no later than the end of August 2021.
Only students assigned housing who meet the conditions outlined in Section 6 (point 6.1) in the Housing Requirements and Regulations may exercise the right of “special early withdrawal.”


[1] The absolute first year of enrollment shall be understood as any academic year of first enrollment in any kind of degree program (even if different from the one attended in AY 2021-2022) which required the same education qualification as the one needed to access the attended program in AY 2021-2022, in any University in Italy or abroad, even if the program has not been completed
