Vistula Group of Universities Fact Sheet Spring 2022/2023

Vistula University does not offer campus lodgings, but our International Office will assist all international and exchange students in finding proper accommodation.

It is possible to rent a studio or a room in a shared student flat or a room in a house/flat occupied by its owners.

Our university recommends students to take the first option, as in the second one student should be ready to conform to the landlords’ conditions. Before signing the contract it is advisable to ask about the all details concerning your life in the house.

Living in a student flat is likely to be less complicated. Depending on a situation – there could be single, double or even multi-bedded rooms. Before taking the decision you should always see your future flat. Do not rent a flat without checking it first.

The sooner you start looking for your accommodation, the better. You can use the internet, local papers or you can find information on “the announcement boards” situated at Vistula University.

The cost of accommodation for one person ranges from 150 to 500 Euro per month (depending on the quantity of places in the room/ apartment).

Please, contact the Vistula University Erasmus Office for detailed information regarding accommodation.

As a student, you should ensure that you have insurance which covers your entire stay in Poland.
