If you do not know which kind of accommodation would suit you, please ask our staff for help and read the following information.
WHERE ARE THE APARTMENTS LOCATED? All our apartments are located in Milanese residential areas, i.e. in perfectly safe and easily reached areas. Some apartments are near the school, others can be easily reached in 40/45 minutes by bus, metro or tram. DOUBLE ROOM: sharing a room with other students is a suitable option only if you are 30 years old or less, as it requires a lot of flexibility and adaptability. According to availability and length of your study, you can also choose to share the room with a friend of yours, even if he or she does not attend our school.
DATE AND TIME OF ARRIVAL Accommodation is usually available from 14:00 on the Sunday prior to your course starting date, to 10:00 on the Saturday immediately following the end of your course. Time of arrival and departure must be communicated to the school or to the landlord/landlady and any changes made to this, or a specific request, must be done in writing. If the school does not receive the time of your arrival in Milan, the accommodation will be automatically available after 18:00. Moving your arrival date earlier, or delaying your departure date, is possible only in special cases and must be agreed with the school in advance.
BOOKING AND PAYMENT We will ask you to provide your credit card number only as a guarantee of your booking. Once you arrive in Milan, you can pay for your accommodation by cash.
DEPOSIT For shared apartments, you will be asked to provide a 100 euro deposit in cash. The deposit will be given back to you upon departure if there is no damage to the apartment or if extra cleaning is not required.
CLEANING The apartments are cleaned and bed-sheets are changed every two weeks. Kitchen, bathroom and other common spaces must be left tidy and in good condition so that they can be used by all of the the flat-mates. Towels are not provided, so please bring your own.
PASSPORT PHOTOCOPY Landlords must have a copy of your ID document in order to inform the Italian authorities of every guest that they have in their home. Bring a copy of your ID with you in order to facilitate this registration procedure.
PARKING To park your car in Milan, you can use garages or parking lots with a fee: we recommend that you get a weekly or monthly ticket to save money. If you wish to park on the street, please check signs and the color and type of parking lines on the ground: ask the school staff or the landlord/landlady where parking is permitted.
