Please note:

1) Places in our dormitories will be allocated on the ‘first come, first served' basis.

2) Priority will be given to students who have uploaded all required application documents in the ePASS system.

3) Rooms in the dormitory are allocated not earlier than 1 month prior to the start of the semester. The student receives an automatic email sent from the ePASS system regarding the allocated room in the dormitory or is informed that his/her request for a room is rejected due to the lack of places. This information appears also after loging into your personal ePASS account.

4) Students looking for accommodation on the private market can contact our office to get some recommendations about the possible options. The real property market in Katowice is well developed, so students who would like to look for accommodation on the private market should be able to easily find a room/apartment to stay. University of Silesia in Katowice takes no responsibility for private accommodation, other than University dormitories.   


Please, note that in the academic year 2021/2022 the number of places in our dormitories will be limited.

As of the 1st July 2021, two out of three university dormitories in Katowice-Ligota: DS 2 and DS 7 will be closed for renovation (thermal modernization and fire protection adjustment). Most students will be offered a room in our dormitories in Sosnowiec (ca 20-30 min from Katowice by bus).

However, despite our efforts we may not be able to guarantee a place in the dormitories for everyone.
