Accommodation in Beja for international students

Presently the Social Services of the IPBeja (SAS) offer four halls of residence: one male residence (43 beds), one female residence (34 beds) and two mixed residence (259 beds). Considering the limited number of rooms available for mobile students in the students residences and that the room allocation criteria is based on the arrival order of the Application Forms, it is advisable that the students send their filled in application forms as soon as possible.

All the halls of residence are equipped with double rooms, social areas, study rooms and pantries (with fridges and micro- waves).

The price for a student in a double room is €145, 00 a month.

The payments must be done till the 8th of each month.

Other accomodation options

In order to overcome the accommodation limits in the students residences, many students opt for a provisional accommodation in a hotel/guesthouse, until they find a permanent housing alternative.

In case the student prefers a room or a private apartment he/she should mention it in the Application Form. It should be noted that the Institute is not responsible for arranging private accommodation. Students are, therefore, advised to:

- contact the Students’ Union of the different IPBeja Schools, as they arrange some housing contacts.

- consult the local real estate agencies to help searching for apartments to rent.
