Accommodation in Milan

Cattolica has limited student housing, but fortunately, student housing options in the city of Milan are as numerous as they are varied. International students looking for accommodation can explore possible solutions on the websites listed on this page.

  

Cattolica partners: these housing search platforms and residence halls have direct agreements with Cattolica.

 
Non-Cattolica partners*
: while we do not necessarily have agreements with these other housing platforms and Cattolica cannot provide any kind of guarantee of placement or satisfaction, they have proven to be popular and reliable among Cattolica students.

 
* IMPORTANT: Some of these sites act as intermediaries and apply commissions for each placement, in which case all housing offers have been properly vetted. Other sites simply manage listings and announcements by third parties, either management companies or individuals. Although these housing search platforms monitor and try to prevent the posting of fraudulent offers, some may still make their way onto the platform. Make sure you have the full name, contact information and address of the renter, and make sure to request a copy of your rent contract and identity document of the renter before transferring any funds to them. Should you have any doubts regarding the legitimacy of the offer you’ve found via any of the platforms, do contact the platform management to request vetting of the contact or to report a suspected fraudulent posting. Cattolica cannot be held responsible for any announcements or posting made by third parties on any of the sites listed here.
