In this article we will analyze the proposals that the real estate market of the Lombard capital has to offer to people like you, who are looking for houses or apartments for rent in Milan near the Catholic University.

Catholic University

The Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan (UCSC) is a private Catholic-inspired University, founded in 1921, with venues also in Brescia, Cremona, Piacenza and Rome.

The founder and promoter of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart is the Istituto di Studi Superiori Giuseppe Toniolo.

The University is characterized by a rich educational offer and represents a choice of excellence. Many students choose to study medicine at the Catholic in Milan or to attend other three-year and master’s degree courses.

It is also linked to a network of health facilities, especially hospitals, research centers and nursing homes including the Policlinico Agostino Gemelli, which bears the name of the founder of the University.

The courses and masters of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan are the most commonly chosen by students, who usually call the University with its acronym Unicatt.

How to reach the Catholic University

The most convenient way to reach the Catholic University is by underground thanks to the Sant’Ambrogio stop on the green line (M2), right at the gates of the University.

Not far away you can find the tram stops of Corso Magenta (lines 16, 27) and Carrobbio (lines 2 and 14) and the bus that runs along the Cerchia dei Bastioni (line 94).

Just a ten minute walk you are at the Cadorna train station, where the red metro line (M1) passes.

University Campuses

A choice increasingly appreciated by those who choose to attend degree and master courses at the Catholic University is accommodation on the Campus.

It is a preferred housing formula especially for students who come from abroad, as it represents the most advantageous solution for the off-site students.

The In-Domus Campuses are among the most popular choice by students in Milan as they offer accommodation solutions with turnkey services that will never be possible to find either in a single-bed or in a student apartment, such as:

  • Fitness area;
  • Relaxation area with TV and playstation;

Within the Campus, the students feel at ease and they can benefit from all the advantages that a traditional rent in an apartment in the city doesn’t offer.

Living on Campus costs much less than any other student accommodation. The monthly rate varies from 450 to 1200 euros per month, which includes the costs of electricity, water and internet, as well as free use of large equipped gyms, music rooms with instruments and relaxation rooms with wide TV screens and playstations.

In addition, unlike other university campuses and private homes, the contractual solutions offered by In-Domus allow students not to pay the fee for the month of August: a great advantage for all those who decide not to use the accommodation during their summer break outside the city.
