Arrival                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

The city of Gdynia is closely connected with the two cities of Sopot and Gdańsk, which together form a network. A trip between the cities is easily possible via buses, trolley buses and trains.

If you arrive by plane, we recommend the airport Gdansk, which is about 20km away. From the airport it is possible to take a taxi or bus to Gdynia.
The city network can also be reached by ferry from the cities of Helsinki, Karlskrona, Nynashamn and Rostock.

Accommodation

All exchange students are offered accommodation in the university's dormitory. In this way, contacts to Polish fellow students can be established quickly. In addition, the monthly rental prices here are comparatively low.

Alternatively, it is possible to rent a room or an apartment on the private housing market. We recommend the placement agency Pepe Housing.

Cost of living

In general, the monthly cost of accommodation, food and transport in Poland is slightly lower than in Western Europe. Students spend an average of 1200-2000 Polish złoty (approx. 265-442€) per month.
For the rent in the dormitory approximately 350-550 Polish złoty (approx. 77-122€) per month should be calculated, for private accommodation approximately 500-1000 Polish złoty (approx. 110-221€).

If you want to travel by plane, Halmstad Airport is one of Sweden’s central hubs with regular connections to Stockholm/Bromma. The journey from the airport to the city centre takes about 10 minutes and can be done by taxi or bus. For the latter, line 40 is the right choice, which stops right outside the terminal.

However, if you are arriving from an international airport, it may be easier to choose Copenhagen Airport (Denmark) as your destination airport and take the train to Halmstad from there.

It is also possible to arrive by train or bus. Both modes of transport have an extensive network to Germany and abroad and stop close to the city centre in Halmdstad.

Accommodation

After the official confirmation of the university, all exchange students are given the opportunity to apply for a place in one of the student halls of residence on the basis of ’first come, first serve'.

In addition, it is possible to rent a room or an apartment on the private housing market. The Student Union publishes current offers here.
