Navigli is one of the most visited and photographed areas of Milan. His humble origins can still be seen in small details such as the old laundry in the Lavandai alley, where he washed his clothes by hand. The recent artistic past of Navigli can be seen in its numerous and beautiful courtyards, whose galleries can be seen pictures of ivy and vases with flowers.
Today the neighborhood offers the best of itself at night, when the locals open the doors and tables begin to appear on the banks of the Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese. Navigli has places for all tastes, from bars to take the aperitif to elegant restaurants. In the surroundings you will find small art galleries and the MUDEC, the museum of culture.
There are many rooms for students in Navigli, so if you live in this neighborhood you will always be a few meters from all the activity and maybe you live in an old house with a unique charm.
HOW TO GET TO NAVIGLI
The neighborhood of Navigli occupies an area that goes from the dock, near the station of Porta Genova (green line M2) to the bypass, which arrives trolleybus 90 and 91, and near the Romolo stop (green line, M2). It is connected to the center by tram number 3, which passes through Piazza XXIV Maggio el Corso San Gottardo, or also with the picturesque tram number 2, which runs through the Alzaia del Naviglio Grande. Trams 9 and 10 connect Porta Genova and the central station, via Porta Venezia and Sempione. Do not worry if you do not find student accommodation in Navigli that suits you, because it is very easy to get there.

Uniplaces is creating a trusted brand for students everywhere. We believe in making finding accommodation better. We want students to have a great experience when they book a place, when they move in, and every day that they spend there. At the same time, we're always looking for trustworthy landlords who can help us deliver this great experience. We've moved the whole process of finding, choosing and booking online. It's our way of turning an old-fashioned market upside-down. It's our way of changing the world.
At Uniplaces we make the process of booking an apartment as easy as possible for both tenant and landlord.
That's why we have our own team of professional photographers that verify our properties and pick our landlords carefully in order to save time on viewings: we think it’s old-fashioned and time-consuming.
You can look at forty different apartments on our platform in the same amount of time that it takes to see a room.
The pictures you see here haven’t been photoshopped, so they’ll be really accurate.
If you’ve still got any doubts, we’ll keep the money that you transfer us until 24h after your move-in date.
If something’s not exactly what you saw online, we’ll help you move somewhere else and return your money.
We can only give you the contact details of your landlord after your booking is accepted. But we can guarantee that Uniplaces chooses the landlords it works with very carefully.
Besides, we’ve had students whose favourite part was living with a local!
Landlords and host families can be great city guides, help you out with translations and even become your friends.
As soon as your booking is accepted, you're given the landlord’s contact details. Then, you can discuss all details directly with them, such as when you’ll be moving-in.
Students move in and out at different times, so your flatmates might change during your stay.
It’s a great opportunity to make new friends!
We personally speak to students who we place in Uniplaces apartments and are sure we will find the right place for you as well!
At the bottom of the property page, you have a calendar where you can see the availability of that room/apartment, according to the landlord.
But if you’re still unsure about that we’re happy to help.
Tell us your move-in and move-out dates and we will double-check if the place is available for you!
There are two different types of deposits: the Holding and Security deposits.
By clicking on “Deposit” at the bottom of the offer page you will get more information about each type of deposit.
In general, the deposit is paid to cover for any potential damages that may occur during your period of stay or will be used as rent compensation in case you leave earlier than originally planned.
If no damages occur and you leave on the agreed move-out date, your deposit should be refunded by the landlord in a way you both agree on.
