The Open reservation monthly are residual housing assignments open to all Bocconi students regularly enrolled* in a.y. 2023-24 and will be held regularly based on room availability, in order to meet as much as possible the demand for housing by students during the year. Only students who are genuinely interested in taking possession of a room are invited to apply at this stage so as not to limit or exhaust the choice for other students.
You may submit an Open reservation monthly housing application if you are regularly enrolled in the a.y. 2023-24 in:
- a Bachelor, Integrated Master of Arts in Law, Master of Science or PhDprogram;
- Specialized and SDA Bocconi Master programs
- Double Degree
regardless of your permanent address, merit requirements, year of course and economic condition of your family.
You may not submit this application if for the a.y. 2023-24:
- you have already been assigned a room in one of the Bocconi residence halls;
in any academic year, you have incurred a revocation measure due to delayed payment or violation of the Bocconi Residence Regulations and the University has ordered the ineligibility to use the Accommodation Service for the entire duration of the study program.
Open reservation monthly sessions will take place starting mid-September according to the dates indicated in the table below that will regularly be updated depending on room availability.
Dedicated webpage - sessions calendar
The dates of the subsequent sessions will be published and confirmed on the same webpage. Each session will be confirmed the night before the opening of each session, in case of room availability.
Period of housing assignment
Open reservation monthly are always valid from the first day of the month following the one in which the reservation is made (i.e. if the application is submitted and accepted during the month of October, the student will be able to take possession of the room starting November 1st) unless otherwise specified in the date indicated next to the room type chosen within the application.
When filling out the application students will have to indicate the number of months intended to stay in the residence, which, we remind you, must be whole months.
Please note: Once the housing period is over it will not be possible to renew it, in case you need more time it will be necessary to submit the application again to check availability.
During each of the Open reservation monthly sessions all the rooms not previously assigned will be made available for reservation. This means that not all Residence Halls and/or room types might be available, and in that case, they will not be listed in the options that you will find in the online application.
Before submitting your application, we invite you to verify the Bocconi Residence Halls and various room types available by checking the relevant sections of our website: in this way, you will already have an idea of the residences/room types that may fit your needs and that you would like to reserve, if available.
By participating in the Open reservation monthly, you will be able to reserve your preferred room type from those that become available when you access the online application. The due fees will be the ones applied to the room type that you will have selected and confirmed — visible at the moment of the selection inside the application.
Please note: The Open reservation monthly are exclusively at full rate. Students interested in the preferential rate may only apply for the Open reservation – recovery session.
How to apply for the Open reservation monthly
Make sure you have your Bocconi credentials (student ID number and password) with you, find a fast internet connection and use one device only to submit your application. At the opening of the applications, please follow the procedure indicated below:
> ACCESS the link at the indicated opening time: you will be in a virtual "waiting room". When your turn comes, log in by entering your Bocconi credentials (student ID number/username and password).
> ENTER in the "Accommodation choice" section.
> SELECT THE RESIDENCE
If you do not see any options, it means that there are no longer available places.
> SELECT ROOM TYPE
If you do not see any options, it means that there are no longer available places.
> CLICK ON "SAVE" at the bottom of the section.
If you can't click it means that there are no longer available places.
> CLICK ON "CONFIRM DATA / SUBMIT DATA"
If you are unable to click it means that there are no longer available places.
> The reservation was successful only if the red "Confirm data/Submit data" button is no longer visible and, in its place, appears the words, "You confirmed the data on dd/mm/yyyyy."
> UPLOAD DOCUMENTS AND SUBMIT APPLICATION
Proceed by 11:59 p.m. (Italian time) on the same day to upload all documents available in application to be printed, hand signed and uploaded in the upload spaces provided, and to pay the security deposit. Click on "Submit application/ Submit application" by11:59 p.m. (Italian time).
The office will verify that your reservation was successful and it will give it a result through MyApplication in the following days.
If you were not able to click on "Save" at the bottom of the section, it means that there are no longer available places. Proceed to select a new room type and/or Residence.
If you have succeeded in selecting a Residence and room type and saved the section, but at the time of "Submit data" another student has taken the last available place for the Residence and/or type you selected, the red "Submit data" button remains visible: this means that, even if you have already expressed and saved a preference in the "Residence and room type" section, your reservation was not successful due to lack of availability.
Because of this, you were not able to confirm the data, so you will have to:
- re-enter the "Residence and Room Type" section;
- select a new option;
- save the data on the section again by clicking on "SAVE";
- confirm the data for the new selection by clicking on the red "Submit data" button.
If in searching for a new option to select all available places are taken, the system would continue to show you, in the "Residence and Room Type" section, your original selection: this does NOT mean that the reservation was successful.
The office will verify that your reservation was successful.

In order to complete the application, it is necessary to click on the button "Submit application" by and no later the application’s deadline

In the event of failure to accept housing, the reservation will be cancelled and the student will forfeit the housing assignment.
After housing acceptance, it will not be possible to cancel the assignment, which will be valid for the entire period of the assignment as accepted by the student, who agrees to pay the full housing fee provided for the academic year in question. There are a number of cases of renunciation and withdrawal, detailed on the dedicated page of the website: please take careful note of them.
Documentation to certify housing assignment
Throughout the academic year, the housing result of your online application will remain visible in MyApplication: you will be able to print it or download it as a pdf file if it will serve as proof of housing tenure; in fact, the housing result contains all the information generally needed for this purpose (name and address of residence, period of assignment, price of assigned housing).
Throughout the period in which the student is a guest of a Bocconi residence hall, room change is not permitted. Instead, it is the right of the University to transfer the resident even during the year to another Residence at the rate provided for the destination residence.
Check-in and payments
If you have been awarded and accepted a housing assignment, check the information regarding payment of the first installment of housing tuition a.y. 2023-24, online check-in and Life in the Bocconi dorms.
Renewal of the housing assignment
The housing assignment for A.Y. 2023-2024 is granted for the academic year of application only; therefore, it is not automatically granted for subsequent academic years, but it is the student's responsibility to verify the possibility of renewal and to make subsequent applications for assignment in the manner that will be provided by the Housing Application Requirements and Regulations for each academic year of interest.
Students assigned housing for whom it is subsequently determined that they have not been properly registered/enrolled for A.Y. 2023-24 will lose their eligibility to use the Housing Service for A.Y. 2023-2024. The successful assignment will be cancelled automatically and students will be required to vacate the assigned housing immediately. It is specified that payments due will remain the student's responsibility even if the assignment is cancelled. Therefore, students are urged to pay special attention, before applying for accommodation, to the cancellation provisions specified on the dedicated page of the website.
