Due to capacity constraints, applications are accepted and processed on a first-come first-served basis (according to the official nomination date by the home institution), until a maximum number of approx. 30 rooms per academic year is reached.
It is important for students to understand that being admitted to the University of Ioannina does not automatically mean they are entitled to a dorm room.
All rooms for Erasmus students are usually available from 1st October until the 8th of February for the 1st semester (or the full academic year depending on the chosen mobility duration), and from 15th of February to the end of June for the 2nd semester.
In case of prolongation requests, these will have to be submitted to the accommodation office, no later than 1st November, but it is highly unlikely that a room at the Students Residence Hall will be offered for prolongation periods, since students nominated for the 2nd semester will have priority.
The cost of a single room is 120 euro/month.
The cost of a double room is 100 euro/month/person.
Please keep in mind that you must prepay the full amount for your accommodation, to be entitled to a room, after you receive all the necessary information from the Administration - Accommodation and Promotion Office, of DIKEPPEE “Stavros Niarchos.
For the students who are nominated for the whole academic year (2 semesters), the payment can be made in the following ways:

Organisation of the academic year in Europe_Eurydice (Higher Education in Greece, p. 33)
On 1st October 2018 the University of Ioannina Merged with the Educational Technological Institute of Epirus, under the Erasmus code G IOANNIN01.
The main campus of the University of Ioannina is the University campus of Ioannina, Campus A (Ηοw to get to Ioannina - Campus A map).
A second campus (Campus B') is located again in the city of Ioannina (for the Departments of Nursing, Speech and Language Therapy and Early Years Learning and Care).
A third campus is located in the city of Arta (for the Departments of Music Studies, Informatics and Telecommunications, and Agriculture).
A fourth campus is located in the city of Preveza (for the Department of Accounting and Finance).
A Greek language certificate (min. B1) is required only for Greek language and classic studies (at the Department of Philology).
This request is related to the fact that Erasmus students without any knowledge of Modern Greek can hardly attend any classes throughout their stay and benefit in full from their Erasmus period of study here. Nonetheless, the Department of Philology would also like to emphasize that nominations of students with no knowledge of Modern Greek will continue to be considered, even though with relatively lower priority.
For all other fields, an English language certificate (min. B2) is strongly recommended, particularly for those taking Master level courses (2nd study cycle). Students with a lower level of English (B1) may also be considered.
A scale of 1 to 10 applies to the grades of each component in the Hellenic Higher Education System. The grading scale is as follows:
Άριστα (Arista) - Excellent: 8.50 - 10.00
Λίαν Kαλώς (Lian Kalos) - Very Good: 6.50 - 8.49
Καλώς (Kalos) - Good: 5.00 - 6.49
Minimum passing grade: 5
