Cost of living

In this section, the approximate cost of living in Bielsko-Biala will be calculated.

Undoubtedly, the below mentioned cost of living will be somewhat averaged, as needs and desires vary depending on economic and social needs.

Accommodation:

The University provides a place in a comfortable and modern university dormitory, provided that the application is completed. (Please take a look at the "Accommodation" tab, which is at the top of the page).

Cost of living in the furnished rooms:
Place in a 3-bed room - 460 zł
Place in a 2-bed room - 490 zł
Place in the room for one - 530 zł

It is also necessary to make a deposit of PLN 150, which will be returned upon departure from the dormitory.

Movement:

There is a convenient transport network in the city (Please take a look at the "Life in Bielsko"). The cost of a student's one-month ticket for all bus lines costs 50 zł.

Food:

Bielsko-Biala food chains give a huge selection of products at low prices. A weekly balanced set of products (including dairy products, minced meat / chicken / other meats, certain types of vegetables) will cost 60/70 PLN. Thus, a monthly meal will cost the student from 300 to 550 zł, depending on preferences.

Social life:

The University and the Center of International Exchange always invite students to join free excursions and events. We are proud to announce that apart from traveling to Krakow, Zywiec and other nearby cities, we also carry out international trips.

However, if the student wants to lead an active life, visit restaurants, clubs and cinemas, then the calculation is given below.

The movie will cost 20/25 zł per session
Lunch in one of the best burgers cafe- up to 35 zł
Going to the club - from 40 zł
 


Thus, a student living in the University dormitory, having a balanced diet, as well as a leading social-active life, will spend 1200 zł per month. This amount is one of the lowest in Poland due to the attractive prices of the developing region.

Bielsko-Biala is an economically smart choice!
