Student Residence Halls – information for students

Students can apply for a place in one of two student residence halls: Residence Hall No. 1 “Sabinki” and Residence Hall No. 3 “Grosik”.

International students admitted to the first year of BA and MA studies in English should apply for accommodation through the Admissions Office, not through the USOS system.

Persons who were issued an eviction order may not receive a place in the Residence hall for the next five years following the eviction.

How to get a place in the student’s house?

Rooms are allocated by the Student Housing Committee, i.e. by the students themselves. Students who want to live in a specific room must write an e-mail to the Committee after receiving a positive decision about place allocation.

In the event that several people wish to live in a specific room, the Committee will allocate a place to one student, based on the following considerations:

  • the cumulative average grade from the entire course of study,
  • the number of years spent in student residence halls,
  • social activity for the benefit of student residence halls.

Students who want to live in a double room with a roommate of their choice must also notify the Committee, and the Committee will take this fact into account when allocating places.

First-year students get places in free rooms.


To check in successfully, please prepare: 

  • identification document, for instance ID card or passport,
  • student ID card or PhD student ID card,
  • current ID card photo.

Upon check-in, students receive a set of bed linen, a room key and an individual resident card.

In accordance with the Rules, students must check in within a period of 14 days which begins seven days before the start of the academic year, i.e. usually between 23 September and 8 October. Students who fail to check in on time will lose their allocated place. Students who cannot check in within the specified period should notify the residence halls by sending an email to the Student Housing Office. 

Accommodation in the SGH student house for the academic year 2022/2023 lasts until October, 7th.

During the check-in period, administration staff work Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Table of fees

The fee for a place in student residence halls depends on the room size. A place in a single room costs PLN 780 per month. A place in a double room costs PLN 630 per month.

Within seven days of signing the contract, students must also pay a deposit of PLN 700. Deposits and other fees are paid to the individual bank account number provided in the USOSweb online system. The deposit is refunded at the end of the accommodation period.
