Final comments
Make sure you have time to travel all over Italy, especially down to the southern part of the country. Skiing in the Alps isn't a bad idea either.

Personal comments
Bank loan hiccups from Bocconi scheme. If you have friends with cars, buy food from out of town hypermarkets. Also, accomodation is really expensive if you're easily lured by the convenience of Bocconi housing ads - finding housing in secondamano will be cheaper, although it may feel more isolated.

Personal comments
Having spent alot of time in the South of Italy and therefore having a Southern accent when speaing Italian made a good talking point with alot of Italians who, at first, found it quite difficult to distinguish where I was from. I was lucky as many of the exchange students at Bocconi do not speak Italian and follow courses in English, this was the only difficulty I found as I am trying to improve my Italian.

Personal comments
There are too many students in this university, so the housing system through the university is complicated. I personally did not find anything through the university system, what is more, I found it quite chaotic. If you are to use it you should have a look in advance and make sure you are staying for a reasonable amount of time (one year better than just a term).

The Naviglio area is great in summer. Exchange students have regular, cheap places to go (such as Palo Alto0, but you get bored after a couple of months. It's worthwhile to go to other places as well. I really liked a small Cuban bar (good drinks, great atmosphere), I have forgotten the name but I thin it was on the street between Bocconi and Naviglio, from Bestrice d'Este to Piaggio Marzo XIV or something.
