Student Accommodation in Belarus
Suitable accommodations are arranged for the students upon their arrival in Belarus and RocApply in conjunction with the desired university will help you acquire affordably secure accommodation. Usually, the university provides residential hostels within walking distance of the academy.
Living conditions in the hostels are standard, with 2 to 3 students sharing rooms with central heating and hot water systems. The hostels are such that students are provided with a common kitchen with a free supply of gas and/or electricity.
The dorm is the cheapest accommodation option. All universities in Belarus provide places in dormitories for their foreign students. In about 65% of the dorms, students live in rooms of 3 to 4 people with access to a communal kitchen and a bathroom.
Sometimes there are blocks of rooms, with two rooms sharing a kitchen and a bathroom. Dorm rooms typically have a bed, a chair, a writing table, a built-in wardrobe, and bookshelves. Students pay a monthly fee of 40 USD or more. Dormitories often have gyms, recreational rooms, canteens, and libraries, as well as a security service.
If for some reason you do not want to apply for a place in the dormitory, you need to look for a flat or a room to rent. This will be a lot more expensive, but you will have the freedom to choose the location and quality of accommodation and even your flatmates.
If you go for this option, you will need to select the accommodation yourself and provide your counselor at the university with the contact number of the person who owns your flat or room.
Monthly rent for a one-room flat is 150 to 300 USD, for a two-room flat — 450 USD or more. For detailed information please keep in touch with us, we will advise you on the proper course of action upon arrival.
