Residence in Dormitory for postgraduate students

Residence in Dormitory for postgraduate students is possible for young researchers (employed doctoral students with the status of a young researcher, funded by the Public Research Agency of the Republic of Slovenia – ARRS) and scholarship holders (doctoral students, who do not have the citizenship of the Republic of Slovenia and do not have the status of a young researcher, but receive a scholarship awarded in the Republic of Slovenia).

Student resident halls (Študentski domovi) for scholarship holders

Slovenians with no Slovenian citizenship receiving a scholarship by the Republic of Slovenia (Public Scholarship, Development, Disability and Maintenance Fund of the Republic of Slovenia) may apply for a room at the Student resident halls. The Regulations on fees and accommodation in students’ dormitories for Slovene nationals without Slovene citizenship and foreigners in the Republic of Slovenia provide that up to 250 places are to be offered in Student resident halls for the recipients of ministry scholarship. Available places for the residence of scholarship recipients are assigned by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport in cooperation with scholarship providers. Recipients of ministry scholarships are charged a subsidised rent. The Ministry or scholarship provider pays the rent directly to the student dorm, i.e. from the scholarship amount granted. 

A very limited number of beds in student dormitories is available for exchange students. Exchange students pay the economic price. Rooms are given to students on a "first-come, first get" basis according to the date and hour of the online application. The application is available here and can be done before you start with the exchange application. More about the dormitories you can find here.

All rooms are double-bedded with a shared bathroom and kitchen. The price varies from 150 - 190€ per month per person, depending on the size and location of the room.
