Student Housing

Dormitories

The University of Gdansk offers a limited number of residence rooms in our dormitories. Upon completing the application procedure, all eligible Erasmus incoming students will receive detailed e-mail instructions on how to apply online for housing in one of the university dormitories. The application system works on a first-come, first-served basis, which means not every student might be provided with a dormitory place (please note that we provide with a place not the whole room). The housing allocation will be announced approximately one month before the date of arrival.

Before you arrive

As to the cost of a dormitory place please check the price. Please see the price list in the attachment. The price depends on the standard of a particular dormitory.

All dormitories accept payments via bank transfer, online, card, or cash; however, cashless transactions are preferred.

The rent must be paid until the 15th of each month, which covers the full month. You are welcome to pay for multiple months upfront if you wish so.

You will be provided with a pillow and a blanket only; however, we recommend getting your own set of duvets, pillows and bedding covers as well as towels, cutlery, mugs, plates, cooking utensils, pots and pans. Do not worry if you forget something – you can buy it cheaply after your arrival.

There is a shared laundry room in the dormitory. Some washing machines are operated with tokens available to buy at reception. The cost of a token is 4,50 PLN and it is good for one washing (1 washing = 1 token = 4,50 PLN). The iron is available upon request.

 

Upon your arrival, you may apply for Internet access. The cost is included in the rent. There is no Wi-Fi in the dormitories, but an Ethernet cable connection can be provided upon earlier application. If you wish to use this service we encourage you to bring your own cable.

Wi-Fi is available on the campus (eduroam).

 

Single occupancy rooms are available ONLY for disabled or special medical needs students. Requests to cover both rents for a double room will be denied.

 

How to apply?

Every accepted Erasmus+ student will receive their individual link and instructions to apply for a place at the university's dormitories. The housing allocation will be announced about one month before arrival. 

 

First semester & whole academic year students

The booking system link & instructions will be sent in August 2023.

 

Second semester students

The booking system link & instructions will be sent in the beginning of January 2024.
