If you are interested in university accommodation, please fill in the Accommodation section of the Application Form and send it to the Incoming Students Advisor.

After the IRO receives your application form, we check the availability of rooms in the student dormitories and inform you directly about the opportunities.

Unfortunately, a limited number of vacant rooms are available. Most foreign students prefer private accommodation and they themselves look around for appropriate places. IRO gives information and advice to students to help them in their search for suitable accommodation.

Students are strongly advised to come to Plovdiv before the start of the October or February term.

The dormitories are located next to the New Campus of the university:


Students coming from EU countries do not need a visa. Other international students can get information about visa application procedure at the Bulgarian embassies or consulates in their home countries or they can consult the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria.

Health Insurance

Students from the EU/European Economic Area (EEA)

Students from EU/EEA countries must have health insurance coverage from their home country. The European Health Insurance Card certifies that you are entitled to necessary medical treatment during temporary stays in other EEA countries, Switzerland and Macedonia. You can receive medical treatment from a doctor or an outpatient care centre, which has concluded a contract with the National Health Insurance Fund.

If you decide to use private health insurance you have to check with your insurance office as to whether your coverage applies to Bulgaria. You must bring the European Health Insurance Card or documentation of private health insurance when you enter Bulgaria.

Students from countries outside the EU/European Economic Area

Students from non-EU/EEA countries should make a private health insurance for minimum 30 000 Euro, which is one of the requisites for obtaining a visa. You have to check with your insurance office as to whether your coverage applies to Bulgaria.
