In questions of accommodation in Pécs, incoming students have two basic options. They may stay in a dormitory if they are eligible to it, or seek an alternative accommodation on arrival.
Accommodation in a university dormitory is offered to exchange students coming on a scholarship or through bilateral agreements between the sending university and the UP. Dormitories are located in the residential area of Pécs. The faculties of the University as well as the city centre are fairly accessible from them, only a short bus journey away.
Altogether there are several rooms of reasonably high quality available for Erasmus incomers during the academic year - however we cannot offer a room for a single student due to the short supply of generally large demand for rooms. Besides, although it is a general preference of students to have a room of their own, we believe in the importance of the additional multi-cultural experience that results from incomers of different nationalities sharing a room in an environment that is equally unfamiliar for them.
The accomodation is made up from units, that contain 2 rooms, a shared bathroom and in some dormitories a kitchen as well ( in some cases 2 common kitchens can be found at every floor). Depending on the dormitory, in one unit 4-6 students live together and share the common areas. Bedclothes are supplied and changed regularly. There is a laundry room where tenants can wash their clothing free of charge.
Life in the dormitories and the various events held in them (game shows, contests, professional programs, exhibitions) are organized by the Student Hostel Committee. The infrastructure of the student hostels has been constantly improving in recent years, but rooms are still offered at a reasonable price. Nearly all hostels offer library and computer services, and have their own clubs, common rooms sporting facilities, snack bars, video and TV rooms.
This year there are nearly 500 international students living in dormitories due to the various scholarship programs and that all faculties launched English-language trainings. So far, exchange students were mostly placed in the Boszorkány and the Hunyor dormitories. This year, they are placed to the first floor of the Boszorkány Hostel, the Hunyor Hostel, the László Szalay (UNIV Hostel), and the Szántó Hostel . Due to the increasing number each student hostel has a student representative who is specifically responsible for the foreign students.

Rent a room/flat!
