We want to make sure that your greatest challenge is deciding which landmarks to see first or discovering the best café—not finding a place to live where you feel comfortable. We do our best to locate housing that is reflective of how the local students are living. Our goal is that when you leave Milan, it will feel like home.
Furnished apartments are single-sex and typically house three to six IES Abroad students and interns, in double or triple rooms. Some apartments are also shared with a live-in Italian Community Assistant who will guide your cultural integration. Meals are not provided but apartments have fully-equipped kitchens with dishwashers. Internet access and a washing machine are provided.
Placements are available in Milanese homes throughout the city. This is a priceless opportunity to learn about Italian families first-hand and engage directly with Italian culture. You have a private room at your homestay and receive breakfast and dinner daily. Enjoy your other meals at university cafeterias, bars, or restaurants.

Because of the extra amenities, this option carries an additional fee.
