Comparison Of Student Dormitories In Warsaw

When choosing a place to live in Warsaw students are often interested in the cheapest options. However, it is worth remembering that price goes hand in hand with quality. Among all housing offers, the lowest price is definitely represented by public dormitories. In Warsaw, we can find a large complex of dormitories designed for students and interns. We can find private and public dorms. If you are not looking for a place in a dormitory but in a private room or the whole apartment, you should visit our profile.  

We decided to closely examine the entire range of dormitories in Warsaw, in order to choose the best place to live. 

We took into account many factors, including:

  1. Location: given that the capital of Poland is a large city, the location of the dormitory is worth noting. Its location near university campuses and public transportation is a guarantee of fast movement, which will pay off in saving a lot of time and travel costs. 
  2. Amenities: check out what comforts the dorm offers. The most important is full room equipment, including a comfortable bed, furniture, a large desk and chair, internet access, and full kitchen supplies.
  3. Additional facilities: like common space to socialize with the other dorm residents, study room/library, gym, and grocery store nearby.
  4. Costs: You should compare the cost of renting a room in different dorms if our budget is predetermined and we don’t want to overpay. The prices of public dorms range from 400zl-850zl, while private dorms are usually 1000-1500zl more expensive. If you are interested in cheap rent in Warsaw and looking for something besides dormitories check out our profile.
  5. Atmosphere: The atmosphere in the dormitory and among the residents is very important. Find out if there are any events or orientation weeks organized to integrate with other students.
  6. Security: It is worth finding out if the dorm has comprehensive security measures, e.g.; gated neighborhood, monitoring.
  7. Opinions of others: Thanks to the opinions of other students, we will learn valuable information that can not be found on the dormitory website. They can help us decide on the choice of the dormitory.

In Warsaw, there are two private dorms in the range of available dormitories, and the rest are public dorms. It should be pointed out that the private dorms stand out from the others in terms of the quality and standard of the rooms. Below is a comparison of the most popular dorm offers in Warsaw.

   In summary, in public dormitories, room furnishings are heavily basic – including a bed, desk and chair, and a shared closet. There is a lack of additional space for oneself, and some of the furniture needs renovation. The standard of the room is not very high. Compared to a private dormitory, it is severely understated. 

In public dorms, bathrooms and kitchens are for shared use. It should be taken into account that with a large number of residents, keeping tidiness in these areas can be problematic. There is a lack of common areas and places suitable for quiet study. Usually, you won’t find a gym or other facilities here either. 

As for the atmosphere, it strongly depends on the roommate you have. He or she is usually assigned randomly to each room. In this situation, if you end up with a person with strong opposites, you may end up with a big disagreement between you two. This site, however, also has its pluses, when you get assigned a person that agrees with your character, you can count on a new best friend. It is also worth remembering that when sharing space with another person, you should follow certain rules of good manners.

A big advantage of the public dormitories is the low price and location, most of them are located in an area 10-15min walk from the main university building. 

Security at the dormitories is at a good level, with a doorman at the entrance who verifies the identity of the students, so you can have the comfort that no outsider can enter.
