Housing

The program arranges housing at the Zaczek, a student hotel and dormitory located near the center of Cracow, an easy 10-minute walk from the Main Square. All students will be accommodated in double rooms with a private bathroom. A few singles may be available for a higher price. The rooms are equipped with sheets, towels, basic tableware. The dorm is near the Blonia field and Jordan recreational park, and adjacent to the modern Jagiellonian University Library, where students may become members for a very small fee.

 

Meals

Students are responsible for their own meal. Breakfast may be purchased weekdays at the Zaczek for a small cost. Prices in Poland are still very reasonable by Western standards and are subject to modest fluctuation, depending on changes in the Polish economy. Students can enjoy a hearty lunch or dinner for the equivalent of $6-$12. Elaborate meals are more expensive, but a student can savor the wide expanse of Polish cuisine without taxing the pocketbook.
