Renting Milano is an established real estate agency in Milan. We take real estate beyond just buildings; our work starts with helping students from around the world rent their dream homes in Milan. It continues by providing them with tailored services to meet the challenges they may encounter during their stay in Italy. The heart of our job is supporting our clients, be they potential, present, or past. We spend our days talking to them, understanding and addressing their needs, and being there for them. We turn these insights into concrete, data-based business solutions to support tenants and landlords faster and better.
When contacting one of these housing agencies, remember to say you are an Istituto Marangoni student. Even if Istituto Marangoni works alongside these housing agencies and continuously monitors the services they provide, the school cannot be held responsible for failing to find a suitable accommodation, nor for any disputes arising between the student and the agency.
The School is located in the very heart of Milan, between the San Babila Metro station (red line) and Montenapoleone (yellow line).
You can use the city's efficient public transport system to look for an apartment anywhere; we recommend the areas near the red and yellow Metro lines, like Porta Venezia, Porta Romana, Loreto, or Isola.
Milan can be considered a safe city. However, it is always a good idea to take some precautions when travelling to a foreign country, whether it is Milan or anywhere else in the world. As an Istituto Marangoni student, you can always receive dedicated support by International SOS (see Health & Assistance section).
We strongly recommend that you refer to the indicated agencies. You can trust them.
Renting an apartment in Italy can require some paperwork. Read the lease agreement carefully before signing to protect your rights and help you get the right deal (this is why we recommend referring to IM partners – they are the ones who can help you). Owners are often asking for 3 months of security deposit and 1 month of rent in advance. Cost of heating and utilities may be included in the rent contract. In that case, it is a good idea to ask your landlord to itemise the amounts for each utility bill at the end of the year, so that you are fully informed of the actual expenses. After signing the lease, either the landlord or the tenant has 30 days to register the contract with the Italian Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate). Registration is required by law: the registration tax - 2% of the annual rent – is paid equally by landlord and tenant. To withdraw from a rental contract, you will need to send a formal letter, usually 3 months before leaving the property.
For Not-EU students, the landlord, within 48 hours from the handover of the flat, has the duty of communicating to the local police station that the foreign student is living there.
