For the Departments/Faculties in Volos / Trikala/Lamia:
Accommodation cannot be reserved. The IRO can help the incoming students find accommodation upon their arrival.
Students are informed of their options and can choose the one more suitable for them. In other words, everyone will find a room to stay when they arrive. Students are free, of course, to find accommodation on their own before or after arrival.
We strongly recommend you to join the "ERASMUS UTH" group in Facebook, where you can contact other Erasmus students and also search for posts offering accommodation.
There are various private real estate agencies in the city of Volos offering accommodation, but the International Relations Office bears no responsibility for the quality of their offered services.
In Volos, incoming students can find private fully furnished apartments or houses at reasonable prices. The cost may vary, depending on location, available equipment, number of rooms, roommates, bills etc. A studio for one person (bills included) usually costs around 250 Euros. Students can also share bigger apartments (around 150-200 Euros each person).
It is important to note that the IRO is unaware of the quality and suitability of rented apartments. That is why students are advised to book their accommodation upon their arrival, after visiting the apartments or houses first.
For the Departments/Faculties in Larissa/Karditsa/:
In Larissa, students can find on-campus accommodation. There are five three-bed rooms for boys and four three-bed rooms for girls. For full capacity the rent is 40€/month, for two people is 60€/month and for one person the rent is 80€/month all bills included.
In Karditsa, there is also on-campus accommodation. One two-bed room for boys and one two-bed room for girls.
The cost of living in Greece for an average Erasmus student varies from 400€ to 700€ per month for all expenses, depending of course on the lifestyle of each student.
It would be better to arrive at the city which your Department is situated in the morning or early in the afternoon, during the working hours of the IRO offices (Mon - Fri, 11:00 - 14:00). If that is not possible, there are various hotels or private apartments for short stay.
For the first nights, it might be necessary to book temporary accommodation. You can use various search engines to book your accommodation:
In any case, the IRO is willing to help students find accommodation and get adjusted to the new environment.
