For the Departments/Faculties in Volos:

Accommodation cannot be reserved. The IRO is able to help the incoming students finding accomodation only after their arrival.

 After arrival the students are informed of their options and they can decide which one is more suitable for them. In other words, they will definitely find a room to stay when they come here. Which one, depends on how soon they will arrive in comparison with the other incoming students. They are free of course to find something else on their own before or after arrival. There are many renting advertisements in the entrance of the University at the beginning of all semesters.

It is more convenient to reach Volos in the morning or early in the afternoon (from till 16.00p.m.), because if the IRO is closed, you will need to stay in a hotel and then visit it the next morning.

 We strongly recommend you to join the "ERASMUS UTH" group in fb, where you can contact other erasmus students and also find persons offering accomodation.

 You can also google some real estate agencies in our district:

 In Volos ERASMUS 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 (having to pay 150-200 each one).

It is important to note that the IRO is unaware of the quality and suitability of rented appartements. The IRO declines any responsibility concerning the services in such appartments.

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 life style of each student.


For the first  nights it might be necessary to get a temporary accomodation.Here are some Hotel suggestions in reasonable prices:
