Practical tips

Accommodation

If you would like to be accommodated in a dorm, you should think about booking it 2 or even 3 months before arrival due to a small number of available rooms comparing to interested students. A single room costs aprox 150-250 Euro per month.

 

We would like to strongly emphasize that we are not an intermediary between dorms and students. We provide assistance only.

Public transportation

Chorzów is served by an extensive public transportation system operated by the Municipal Transport Company (ZTM) which makes it possible to reach the desired part of the city reasonably quickly. The city transportation system operates 24 hours a day and comprises bus and tram routes.

 

Using public transport is advisable not only because of rush hour traffic jams but also because of its low cost.  As a result the public transportation is popular with city residents. You can find more at https://rj.metropoliaztm.pl/przystanki/chorzow/.
