Room for rent in Milan: how much does it cost?

May 20, 2022 | Milan

Those who choose to attend a course of study in Milan in most cases have the need to find

a room to rent, as a preferential solution, compared to the choice of an apartment.

But how much does a single room in Milan cost? Are we sure that it is more convenient than other solutions such as renting accommodation on a campus?

How to look for a room in Milan

In this regard, we remind you that looking for a room for rent in Milan is not so difficult.

In fact, you can use services such as:

– listing sites on the Internet, where there are usually specific sections reserved for the room rental in Milan;

real estate agencies specialized in short to medium term rentals;

– local newspapers or journals with advertisements for rooms for rent in Milan;

– word of mouth from other students who have already done the same research.

How much does a room for students in Milan cost

As we told you, looking for a room to rent in Milan will not be a problem. But there’s still the question of costs: how much does a room for students in Milan cost?

Milan is one of the most expensive cities in Italy to rent a room, although the prices vary depending on the location and services offered, a single room costs on average between 500 and 600 euros.

It may be useful to ask yourself whether it is actually preferable to opt for this solution or, on the other hand, to use alternative services.

Extra expenses beyond the rent in Milan

If the cost of a room for rent in Milan is about 500-600 euros, it is also true that to that cost you have to add a long list of additional expenses, including the condominium expenses, utilities and internet connection, which can be very expensive and will always end up falling into the budget of the student and his family. Besides this, think of those for the laundry or, again, to any movements to the faculty or to a place where you can study with serenity.

An alternative choice in Milan

It is here that the possibility of opting for a more comfortable alternative takes over. This is represented by the choice of a campus In-Domus, where the  off-site students find not only a room in which to rest, relax or study, but also a wide range of services: kitchens, restaurants, laundries, study rooms, etc. that will allow them to live their student experience with greater quality.

Choosing an international setting in Milan

In this scenario, choosing a context, such as that of the In-Domus campuses, is a more than valid option, which offers a number of advantages and allows you to live an international experience of great sociality and support.


As we have mentioned above, although Milan is not one of the cheapest cities in Italy, it has several solutions to meet all the needs of the off-site student, without running out of money.
