Accommodation is an important consideration while you are living away from home.

University of Macedonia is not a campus University and due to the shortage of housing, a majority of the exchange students will be accommodated off campus. This can be a not so cheap option, so sharing with fellow students helps to spread the cost.

Private Housing

Students who are interested for a private housing you must look for a room in the private market. When you reach the University, you will find, as in most universities, boards plastered with notices for flat-shares and room lets. You can also consult local newspapers for adverts or refer to real estate agencies (for example: spitogatos.gr; xe.gr; spiti24.gr; tospitimou.gr) which have lists of apartments of rent in Thessaloniki. Keep in mind that you also will be required to pay a deposit of one month’s rent when you start renting the apartment.

Here are few handy tips to follow when you are looking for accommodation:
(a) considering the city’s size and traffic, always keep good bus connections in mind,
(b) it probably isn’t worth bringing too many household items with you. Most students buy the necessary equipment once they come in Thessaloniki,
(c) you can place or search for an advertisement, prices for a private room in an apartment, shared with other students, range from a minimum of ~200€ to a maximum ~400€ per month, (d) remember that for any information you can always refer to the International Students Office or Department of Accounting and Finance.
