Housing facilities for Ph.D. students
Students admitted to PhD programs can move in different ways while looking for housing. Here below a few options are described, in or out of campus.
- UNIVERSITY RESIDENCES
Different housing application options are normally available with in the following chronological order:
(1) application opening for REDUCED RATE housing - late March
(2) application opening for FULL RATE housing - May
Students may only submit one application, for either full rate (1) or reduced rate (2) housing. You cannot apply for both of them.
(3) RESIDUAL ASSIGNMENT application - starting from June
ongoing with regular sessions throughout the whole academic year, based on room availabilities
- OTHER RESIDENCES
Students may also write to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them for a list of other residences nearby the campus so that you can contact them and check their availabilities.
- APARTMENT HUNTING
If you are interested in finding an apartment by yourself, you can find a list of rooms/apartments available on the notice boards around the Bocconi buildings; also, you can do your search by using specialized websites (egs. http://www.idealista.it/en/ , http://www.kijiji.it/ , https://www.uniplaces.com/ , etc.) or by contacting a real estate agency.
Shared housing (private room, use of bathroom and kitchen) will cost approximately € 500 per month. A studio apartment will cost approximately € 700-800 per month. Expect to pay three month rent in advance, plus a refundable deposit (on vacating) which can be as much as three-month rent. This deposit is usually held in a bank account and the interest credited. Be careful as to how much notice you are required to give before terminating the contract.
