Accommodation in Slovakia
You have been asking a lot about accommodation – where to get a room, how, for how much, etc. So let´s take a look at the accommodation possibilities in Slovakia.
Apparently, accommodation is the most important thing and everybody got to have a roof over his head. So let us give you some overview of the options you have.
If you want to experience the real student life of Slovakia and pay less at the same time, you should apply for a room in a university dormitory. However, do it as soon as possible because the capacities are not enough for everybody and the basic rule is applied here: “who comes first, takes first”.
Also, the places are granted almost exclusively only for the students of the exact university, so you should send application to the dorm of the university where you will study. It is possible to apply also at other dormitories where you would like to live but it is very exceptional to receive a stay in a dormitory not dedicated to your university so better don´t count with it.
Dormitories of Slovak Universities
Most of the rooms look like flats with 1-3 rooms sharing one bathroom, but there are also some dormitories with common shower. There are usually 1-4 people of the same gender accommodated in one room. The price varies from 50-100 €/month according to the dormitory and the number or roommate. There is also mensa, fitness or other services available for you in the student houses.
