For those who want complete independence and are interested in enjoying an experience in Lugano, the ILI School offers extremely practical and comfortable studio apartments, located just 50 metres from the school, within a residence that is almost entirely occupied by students.
The studio apartments are very welcoming and fully furnished, featuring a fully-equipped kitchenette and a bathroom with shower or bath. Inside the residence, there is a common laundry room with washing machines and dryers.
A beautiful lake view can be enjoyed from the terrace on the 3rd and 4th floors. The residence is a 3-minute walk from the new SBG railway station in Lugano, which offers all public transport connections and various services including a grocery store, pharmacy, medical centre, kiosk, and more.
The city centre can be reached from the train station in 92 seconds via the funicular (daily from 5:00 am to 12:00 am).
Staying with a family
CHF 250.- per week
For those who are interested in staying with a host family, the ILI School has a network of trusted and referenced families who are happy to host our students.
All of the families live in the city of Lugano, easily reachable from the school, with each student having their own spacious room, in some cases with private bathroom.
The price includes breakfast and dinner.
Some of the Host Families
Martina and Brian, an art historian and an educator, both 30 years old, live in a chalet with a large garden about 10 minutes from the School by public transport. They offer students a private room with a piano, with breakfast and dinner included from Monday to Sunday along with a lot of conversation in Italian.
They both have many passions, including yoga, hockey, theatre and cinema. During the weekend, they often go hiking in the mountains.
It is a pleasure for them to host and to become acquainted with students from all over the world!
The mother and her 26-year-old daughter live in a cosy home in a beautiful area on the outskirts of Lugano, with the school and city centre easily reached on the local orange train. Friendliness and good cooking are the order of the day!
Isabella and her husband Angelo have extensive experience in hosting students from around the world, having provided accommodation for several years.
Cooking is their forte and staying with them means being able to enjoy great dishes cooked by Isabella. There will also be some surprising specialities!
Another great advantage is that their apartment is located just 5-minutes’ walk from the School and the city centre, a perfect arrangement!

Upon the student’s request, the ILI School can provide a range of possibilities for staying in hotels located near the School.
