The University of Milano-Bicocca is the most recent University in the city and it is located on the iconic Pirelli factory complex.

Its foundation helped to accelerate the real estate engine of the Bicocca district, giving rise to new activities such as the famous shopping center Bicocca Village.

The urban redevelopment of this area has led to a great availability of houses and apartments for rent near the University Bicocca, with services and competitive prices, compared to the rest of Milan.

This area is also considered very popular by students because it is served by the M5 metro line, which allows you to quickly reach every other part of the city.
