RENTING A FLAT

In case of lack of free places in dormitory, we advice to rent a flat.

You can always rent a flat on your own with a real estate agency (biuro nieruchomości).

The rent depends on the apartment location, equipment and usually varies from 200 to 250 EUR for a one-room apartment. Renting a flat with other students is probably cheaper.
