 5. Accommodation possibilities:

1) Private Student dormitory "Basecamp " (highly recommended)

This is not just a basic dormitory. It is based to guarantee the best Erasmus+ experience where you can meet up with different students and spend most of the time outside of your room. When you book your stay in there, you will not only get the access to the cosy and fresh room but also to the 24/7 open gym. Moreover, there will be a canteen to buy your breakfast, 33 fully-equipped kitchens, a quiet place to study but also a huge place to dance at a party!

2) Private Student hostel AKADEMIK POLONIA

Booking is done directly by the Student

Rooms with higher standard, single or double room is possible.

3) Private dormitory "Kościuszki 33"


Phone: +48698680408

Kościuszki 33 is a modern, spacious interior, set in a 19th century tenement house in the very center of Katowice.

4) M13 Wygodne spanie

Moder apartments and rooms in the center of Katowice. High standard.


Phone: +48514048301


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.
