The main site is on Via Montenapoleone at the centre of Milan’s fashion district: an unrivalled location in terms of the influences and inspiration surrounding students daily.

This is where the student office and technical labs are, including the design, textile, web design, and visual merchandising labs.

Student lifestyle

There is enormous potential for a very active and engaging lifestyle as a student of Accademia del Lusso, thanks to its location and also to the numerous events organised by the school throughout the year.
Milan is a vibrant city and offers endless opportunities to suit all tastes, from its cultural heritage, historical landmarks and museums to its thriving nightlife, sports, music, and shopping scenes. Milan often hosts high-profile events in the fashion industry and other sectors, and also has excellent connections to the rest of Italy and Europe.


Accademia del Lusso is affiliated with estate agencies in Milan to assist all students in finding suitable accommodation near to the school. Most students choose to live in the city of Milan in rented accommodation, and we provide full assistance for international students who wish to do the same. We are also affiliated with a university campus about 35 minutes away on the train, in the quiet countryside of Brianza at the foot of the alps, between Milan and Como. At the campus, on-suite, private rooms are available as well as three meals per day and all on-campus facilities.
