The two most common types of accommodation used by foreign students and visitors to the University of Belgrade are renting a room at the Students’ Centre Belgrade (student dormitory or one of their two hostels), or renting private housing.
Student dormitories in Belgrade are run and managed by the Students’ Centre Belgrade (www.sc.rs). Within their offer they also have two hostels available for individuals or groups.
Important: Students’ Centre Belgrade is an independent institution. Therefore, accommodation in all of their facilities is independently arranged by visitors themselves, directly with the management of the dormitory and the hostels.
SC Student Dormitory
“Rifat Burdžević” Student Dormitory was built in 1948. One part of the capacity is designated for accommodating foreign students. Owing to international exchange of students which functions on the principles of reciprocity, each year this hall is occupied by students mostly from Western Europe, Asia and North America. All rooms for foreign students are of the 1st category, with the characteristics of a small apartment. This hall of residence can accommodate 367 students in single, double and triple bedrooms of the 2nd category.
Important: Under few specific types of cooperation, the University of Belgrade is able to offer complimentary accommodation in the Student Dormitory “Rifat Burdžević”, with the support of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia and of the Students’ Centre Belgrade. The free-of-charge accommodation can be provided for incoming exchange students on the basis of an Agreement of Cooperation between the student’s home institution and the University of Belgrade following the principle of reciprocity. Please check with the International Office of your home university if the exchange program within which you wish to apply for mobility at the University of Belgrade includes the possibility of free accommodation.
