Our 13-building campus, which we share with NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti), is located in the Navigli (canal) district of Milan. It is close to public transportation and not far from the city center, with its historic monuments and lively shopping streets. With 4000 students from over 50 countries studying here, our campus is a truly vibrant, multicultural environment. It also features several world-class facilities.
Domus Academy’s Design Lab is equipped with a wide range of materials and high-tech tools, such as 3D printers, for the production of models and storyboards required as part of your design coursework. The Design Lab is where product ideas become reality.
Students of our Fashion Design programs use the Fashion Lab to produce prototypes of clothing and accessories. Fully equipped with sewing machines, mannequins, irons, sewing tables, and related tools, as well as leathers and fabrics, the Fashion Lab is where new fashions take shape.
The Language Center at Domus Academy helps international students improve their knowledge of the Italian language. The Center organizes courses at different levels so that students can communicate better during their internship experiences and in their everyday life in Milan.
The Corner, NABA’s on-campus eatery, includes a bar and restaurant offering breakfast and drinks and a self-service cafeteria open for lunch. On the roof of the cafeteria is a pleasant terrace where you can relax over lunch in the warmer months. Or you can enjoy a picnic with friends on our beautiful grassy lawn.
Domus Academy’s excellent library includes a collection of more than 400 DVDs and 12,000 books on design, architecture, fashion, visual arts, and business—all for your free use in a quiet and beautiful place. Its more than 5,000 magazines include historical publications and the latest editions of national and international professional journals. The collection also contains the degree theses of all our students from 2007 until the present.
Students have access to online subscription and special physical library membership resources, including:
Each master’s program has a dedicated directory on the Domus Academy server containing teaching materials and a personal folder for each student. The school also provides numerous workstations loaded with the latest releases of leading software programs. Apps are available for mobile devices. A help desk gives students expert assistance in resolving computer and wireless problems quickly.
The campus also features a fine arts shop and a copy center. For information about on-campus activities, see the Student Services page.
