Every international student can stay in a students dormitory – they should inform us while applying so that it can be booked in advance. Each student can tick the option “accommodation in a student hall of residence” on the application form. Living in a dormitory is not mandatory, a student can rent a room from a private landlord – but this they should do on their own.
There are mostly double rooms in the dormitories. Bathrooms are shared by a few students. Single rooms are also available however they are in the first place for students with special needs or disabilities. There are kitchens with cookers on each floor.
The price of the dormitory includes laundry, electricity, the Internet. There are washing machines and drying rooms. If you want to use Internet in the dormitory you should have your own PC/laptop. You can also use our computer laboratories with free Internet access in our campus open 24 hours a day 7 days a week – in this case you do not need your own computer.
The library is open 7 days a week. The student can borrow books on the basis of their student’s ID. To borrow the books or use e-library the student doesn’t pay. Only if they do not return the book on the agreed time they need to pay some penalty.
The price of a meal in our canteen is ca. 2,50 EUR. Vegetarian meals may not be available every day in the canteen. There is an alternative: vegetarian bars Vega or Greenway situated within 20 minutes of walking distance from the university offering a wide choice of vegetarian dishes, including pure vegetarian ones; a lot of students (both international and Polish) cook themselves in the dormitories, all of which have kitchen facilities. Most dormitories also have cafeterias.
We wouldn’t say that there is any difference in how Polish and international students spend their free time. Our city offers numerous sport facilities: fitness clubs, skating rings, swimming pools, golf courses, paragliding clubs, a horse-racing track and many more. Wrocław has many green areas. There are paths along the river and channels that attract cyclists and strollers. Wrocław is a little like Venice – we have over 100 bridges here. There are also plentiful cultural events: concerts, opera performances, theatre plays. A student can become a member of a student association, there are many to choose from including: sports, TV, radio, choir, photography.
When there is a holiday typical for our culture like Christmas – we organize a dinner for all the international students.
Yes, no permit is required for students of regular (daily) studies. Many employers are interested in providing job opportunities for young engineers: twice a year our university organizes job fairs where employers present their offer to students: with over 135 employers exhibiting in the last edition.
Foreign students just like students from Poland can get a scholarship after their first year of study for good result.
You can do almost any sport you like. Our sports association offers 30 disciplines (e.g. swimming, skiing, volleyball, basketball tennis, chess, horse riding and many others). Computer laboratories are open for free to the students.
The voltages are 230 V in Poland. If you want to use a computer in your room in the dormitory you should have your own PC or laptop. Another option are computer laboratories in the campus.
Every international student at WUST can attend Polish language classes twice a week free of charge at our Polish Language Centre. This is not obligatory.
