The residence offers accommodation to both male and female students who are applying or already study at a private or public university. Teachers, investigators, young professionals and other people connected to the university community can also apply.
It is possible to stay at the residence throughout the academic year, for a few months or even for a few days. Long-term stays equal to or longer than 1 month are considered, with the rest being classified as short-term.
The candidate should fill the Application Form. The Residence Director will notify the candidate, by any means, of the decision of his/her admission, meaning: if he/she has been accepted, put in the waiting list or not accepted.
The Residence will have a waiting list for all the candidates who, although fulfil the requirements, haven’t been accepted for lack of room availability. In case there is a room, the Residence Director will immediately contact the candidate. For this reason it is important to write down in the Application Form all the telephone numbers and e-mails addresses, so that a contact during summer holidays is possible.
From the date the candidate has been told that she/he has been admitted, the candidate has 5 working days to make his registration, which requires:
– Handling of Registration Form. The form is available in the residence or can be downloaded from our website. Then it should be completely filled and delivered in the Residence or sent by mail, together with the following documents:
— University’s enrolment certificate or equivalent document;
— 1 candidate’s coloured photo;
— Copy of candidate’s identity card.
– Deposit Payment: The deposit, the value of which equals one and a half month’s payment, aims to guarantee the candidate’s fulfilment of:
— the payments stated in the contract
— any damage she/he may have caused in the Residence’s facilities or equipment;
— the provisions of the contract and regulation, with regard to which violation determines the loss of right to use the Residence;
— the contract’s validity period.
The registration is guaranteed only after the handling of registration form, the documents and the deposit payment.
After registration is successfully completed, the following documents will be provided to the Resident or sent to her/his home:
– Contract (two copies);
– Internal Regulation (two copies).
Within 5 working days following receipt of said documents, both copies of the Contract and the Internal Regulation must be signed by the candidate and sent to the Residence. After that, SPRU will sign the documents and send a copy of each to the candidate.
The room allocation is made by the Residence Director. Former residents and those who have renewed their stay will have preference when choosing the room. In case there is a problem, the Residence reserves itself the right to allocate the Resident in another room during her/his stay, as long as the new room is the same type as the one stated in the contract.
The deposit will be returned within thirty days from the date of the contract’s conclusion and upon satisfaction of all credits with SPRU.
The lack of payment of the 1st rent within one week from the date of beginning provided for in the contract, determines the contract’s rescission, and consequent loss of deposit. the room will be considered available and can be assigned to another candidate.
