We are proud to say that IES Abroad Milan programs have been established since 1987, and we are thrilled to welcome a brand-new space to elevate the student experience even further. Discover the vibrant hub of learning and exploration at the brand-new IES Abroad Milan Center!

The IES Abroad Milan Center is located in a vibrant business campus composed of various companies, services, and green spaces that is environmentally conscious and platinum LEED certified. This hub is located 10-15 minutes from the city center by public transit and 5 minutes away from the famous City Life area. 

The facility offers state-of-the art spaces for student learning and community building. It also offers also a 24/7 reception, bookshop, restaurants, laundry services, an Amazon Locker, and relaxation areas.  Everything you need is right at your fingertips and is conveniently located near the Lotto Metro station right outside the Center's front door.

Designed in 1976 by iconic Italian architect Renzo Piano, who designed well-known works such as the Modern Wing of the Art Institute in Chicago and Centre Pompidou in Paris, Monterosa 91 is a newly renovated building and is home to our new IES Abroad Milan Center. What’s more is that the building is built into the side of a hill nestled by nature in the heart of Milan. How cool is that?
