Domus Academy’s Student Life Office is here to make all students feel welcome and supported in our vibrant, inclusive, international community. We offer help with logistics, organize trips and sporting events, and connect students with health services. Our office is located in Building A on the ground floor.
The Student Life Office can help you with the practical side of living in Milan so you can settle down and feel at home here. We can advise you on how to get health insurance, set up a bank account, get an Italian mobile number, and obtain your fiscal code card and permit of stay.
We facilitate fun extracurricular activities so you can socialize with your international and Italian classmates outside of class. We host welcome breakfasts, student parties, movie nights, and cultural trips such as street art tours in Milan. We also organize short trips such as ski weekends and city visits in Italy and beyond, where you can discover the beauty and charms of Europe.
Interested students from Domus and NABA can join our men’s football (soccer) or basketball team or the women’s volleyball team. Students train together and compete in tournaments with other Milanese universities. We also host an annual on-campus sport tournament, with participation open to all.
Recreational classes and clubs such as Biodanza, Dancing Club, Drama Club, and yoga are offered on campus.
Through the Student Life Office, you can also take advantage of special deals we have with certain services, such as private clinics, dentists, movie theaters, and banks, as well as with sports centers, restaurants, and retail shops. You will find all the current deals on your MyDomus portal.
Additional exclusive services and cultural opportunities are offered to students through the Project for the Attraction of International Talents to Milan Universities, an innovative program supported by the Milan Chamber of Commerce & Industry together with a group of Milanese universities and schools that Domus Academy and NABA belong to.
Among the services offered is the Milan Identity Card, which provides foreign students with discounts on activities at important cultural centers in Milan (e.g., the Triennale di Milano, Piccolo Teatro, Museo della Scienza e della Tecnica, and more). The card also offers some discounts on local transportation.
We have special agreements with local medical centers and dentists. If you need a regular medical check-up or a visit to a specialist, we can inform you about options. Our team can also help you get health insurance in Italy.
If you are having a difficult time, you can take advantage of our individual or group counseling services for help in re-activating your personal resources and improving your well-being.
The service offers a confidential space for listening about issues related to your studies or to life in general, such as distance from home and loneliness, being immersed in a different culture, anxiety about exams, interpersonal conflicts, and other emotional issues.
Although Domus Academy does not offer a specialized tutoring service nor special learning tools for students with physical disabilities or special educational needs (SENs), our faculty and staff members actively engage in removing obstacles to the learning process. We make accommodations relating to exams and academic monitoring.
