Are you accepted in some of the universities in Kosice (Pavol Jozef Safarik University, Technical University, University of veterinary medicine and pharmacy) and you started to look for a flat? There is one good news and one bad news – as there are plenty of Slovak and foreign students, there are many students flats, dormitories and possibilities to find a flat. The bad news is that the demand is higher that offer and prices went up significantly in last years. There was a lot of development and construction progress in the last years, so there are many good flats in the market. Universities have also dormitories, but they are usually occupied by students from higher years who reserved them in previous years.
The best time to look for a flat is before the end of August when most of the students are not in Kosice and the offer might be better. If you start looking in September, prices will be higher as most of the international and Slovak students look on the same time.
What is the budget you might expect in Kosice:
single rooms apartments (with kitchen, bathroom and approximately 20-25m2) for single person are usually the most expensive and will start from 300€, luxurious apartments will be 500-600€
double rooms apartments (with two single rooms) are prices around 380-450€ – the price is for 2 students
three students may count with the price of 450-500€
four students should be having budget of 550-600€

Second is by real estate agencies – the disadvantage is that there are service charges, that are charged to students in amount of one month rent. We work with the agent which is not charging any service fee to students and it working with international students mostly.
