No offense but italians are not known to be the best english speakers. Overall though it was seldom a problem. At the university most of the interaction was in english. Socially and everyday-life-wise it was a little frustrating in the beginning but it didn't take long to get to know the most basic phrases and by the fourth month I started to be able to have conversations in italian. As long as you are eager to learn there are few problems.

There were not many choices for me going to study at Bocconi, in finding accomodations. I showed up at the university for language class, staying in a hotel for two weeks while I was figuring out where to live. A little aggravating, but a great learning experience.

Housing
Type of housing: Dormitory
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
My dormitory room was pretty ascetic. My friends found some nice apartments with the help of the school and some student organizations. Unfortunately, they were more expensive as well.

I appreciated the fact that my room was cleaned every day - it was included in the relatively cheap price of the accomodation. I enjoy cooking and there were no cooking facilities or refrigerators in the rooms or in common areas.

While studying in Milan I had the opportunity to live with two Italian undergraduates. I think this experience allowed me to truly understand and appreciate all aspects of the language and culture.

The housing for some students was impeccable. Unfortunately my apartment was extremely small and slightly dirty. However, these things did not stop me from enjoying my time with my two amazing, Italian roommates.

Milano has such a great variety of cafŔs, bars, discos and nightclubs and we chose to take advantage of as many as possible of them. As an exchange student the international evenings at Old Fashion CafŔ was a must every wednesday - probably the most popular spot this night. In the summer season Borgo del tempo perso is an amazing place. Both inside and outside dancefloors and always packed, a little difficult to get to without a car but everything is possible when you want it enough. CafŔ Solaire is also a mainly outdoor disco located on the bank of one the artificial lakes in the outskirts of the city. Interesting scene. Used to just hang out at Bar Magenta - place where all kinds of people go. Nice atmosphere, and a regular hangout for quite a few international students and au pairs. Palo Alto have a disco downstairs and a covered sidewalk cafe upstairs - aperitivo is also tasty here. The bar/aperitivo place we used the most was probably Yguana. Maybe the best aperitivo.... Good cocktails and always crowded. The places at Corso Como should not be forgotten - take your pick - there's plenty to choose from: Loola Paloosa, Hollywood, Casablanca, Touqeville, and the additional bars around. Bon divertimente.
