International exchange students can choose between two housing options: living in student residence hall or private accommodation.
Student residence hall
Exchange students coming to Zagreb may choose between organized accommodation in 3 student halls of residence or private rental. University of Zagreb does not guarantee student accommodation. Students that decide to take accommodation in student halls of residence need to apply it. The housing request form is a part of the general online application form for exchange students. As the number of beds available for exchange students is limited, vacancies will be determined on the "first-come, first-served" principle.
NOTE: Due to the limited number of vacancies, only oversees students and students from countries with a visa regime with Croatia will be guaranteed accommodation in student hall of residence.
Students may choose between three (3) halls of residence - please click the link to access more information (brochure):
DEADLINES TO APPLY FOR STUDENT ACCOMMODATION:
- 10 June for the upcoming study year / winter semester
- 10 December for the upcoming summer semester
IMPORTANT: Housing request forms that arrive after the deadline will NOT be considered.
|If you want to live outside the university dorms, you may also check the premises of the Logistic Youth Centre that has 10 rooms with 25 beds (price per moth/person is 1500HRK/approx. 200EUR). Check their facebook pages http://www.facebook.com/logistickicentar.mladih .|
|For students that don't want to live in student residences it is necessary to look for alternatives such as private rental accommodation. |
Rents vary greatly according to location, room size, facility etc. Overhead expenses are sometimes included in the price, and sometimes are paid by the consumer. Payment is usually expected at the beginning of the month, while some landlords request payment for several months in advance.
International students will have to organize accommodation on their own, i.e. look for private rental accommodation. Rents vary greatly according to location, room size, facility etc. Overhead expenses are sometimes included in the price, and sometimes are paid by the consumer. Payment is usually expected at the beginning of the month, while some landlords request payment for several months in advance.
