Ignatianum is located in Krakow, the most touristic Polish city and a city of 21 higher education institutions and approx. 167 000 students, which means that finding a room or a flat may be difficult.
The price for a room depends on the standard and location of the flat. Our University is located just a 10 minute walk from the city centre (Rynek Główny) and generally to the Old Town district or ''Stare Miasto'' in Polish. Almost all of the flats which are close to this location are in old-style houses, which has its pluses and minuses (for example, heating bills during the winter are quite high). Please have these additional costs in mind while looking for an apartment.
Other districts close to the University are: ''Kazimierz'', ''Śródmieście'', ''Grzegórzki'' and the prices and conditions of apartments can often be better than in the Old Town. If you need cheaper accommodation, however, you will probably need to travel to the University by bus or tram, walk a longer way or use a bike.

Student contacts the selected dormitory or flat owner individually.
