Regarding accommodation in Split, incoming students have two basic options.

They may stay in a dormitory or seek for a private accomodation.
The University of Split offers accommodation for Erasmus students  in the Student dorm Spinut and Student dorm Campus, but the number of rooms at the Student dormitories is limited, therefore, places are distributed on a first come, first served basis.

IMPORTANT: University of Split can only guaranty accommodation in the dorms for the duration of the official mobility period stated in acceptance letters, so please plan your arrival/departure in accordance with it.





Note: Due to GDPR coming into force, the students' Acceptance Letter File Numbers are replacing the students' full names in the Accommodation lists.
