There are many different options for arranging student accommodation in Poland. They vary depending on the city and higher education institution you choose. Many Polish HEIs have their own dormitories, which are usually the cheapest option available. However, most Polish students prefer to rent a room in a private apartment.

Student houses and dormitories

The pricing of the student houses depends on the particular HEI. Usually the cost of accommodation in a dormitory ranges is around EUR 60-80 monthly for a shared room and between EUR 100-150 for a single room. However, the standard of the dormitories may differ greatly even between various student houses of the same HEI, so it’s good to do some research before the final decision. What doesn’t differ is the friendly and helpful atmosphere in the student houses.

Private housing

It is quite common in Poland to rent a room in a bigger apartment. Most of the out-of-town students share flats in this way. The cost varies between cities and it depends greatly on the location of the apartment as well as the size and quality of the room. The monthly rent is usually between EUR 150 and 200. Some landlords may require a deposit of a similar amount. Don’t worry if you don’t have friends to live with. Sharing a flat with locals is an amazing opportunity: you can pay for the accommodation and get great friends for free! And if you really don’t like to share, you can find an independent apartment. The rent for the smallest, one-room apartment starts from about EUR 300 (in Warsaw).

There are a number of scholarships available within the limits defined in bilateral  agreements.

They are financed either by the Polish or the foreign partner’s government, often with the aim to enhance exchange within a specific field of study.

The amount of a scholarship depends on the type of study undertaken.

It is also advisable to check with local authorities if they have a scholarship programme that includes studies in Poland.

POLISH GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP is awarded to international candidates on the basis of bilateral agreements. Monthly scholarship amounts to 900 PLN and it is supposed to cover the accommodation (dormitory) and living costs. Studies for scholarship holders are free of charge. Scholarships are funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and administered by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange. To apply for scholarship foreigners should submit suitable documents to the Polish Embassies and Consulates in their countries of residence.
