Living In Campus

Overview

RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) is providing campus housing accommodation to its students. The student hostel, located on the campus has been built to offer a comfortable living area for our students. The comfort, safety and security of our students are very important to us. As such, in order to have a pleasant time while living on campus, students have to obey a few rules and regulations, described below. Let the University campus housing be one of many positive and rewarding experiences for you, here at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K).

    Apartment Facilitates

    There are 8 apartments available in the university hostel. Each one of the apartments has the capacity to accommodate 2 to 3 students. Within the apartment, there is a sleeping area, a shared hall, a kitchen and a toilet.

    There is no specific area for studying, since the hostel is located within the campus, and students have easy access to the University library.

    Each apartment contains:

    • 3 beds, each with a set of sheets, a pillow, blanket and quilt.
    • Wardrobe
    • Living Space with satellite TV
    • Cleaning equipment
    • Wi-Fi connection

    Eligibility

    Students who are eligible to take advantage of this opportunity are female students. The selection of the residents will be based on the distance of their hometowns from Prishtina. With limited hostel accommodation we wish to help those students with greatest need for being on campus. We anticipate that the accommodation will primarily be for those students who are new to living in Kosovo.
