Accommodation for AFAD students

Information on accommodation options for students and accommodation application

Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava does not have in its possession and does not manage a student dormitory.

Based on the Agreement on the provision of accommodation services with Comenius University in Bratislava, or with other universities, AFAD acquires an opportunity to provide accommodation for a certain number of AFAD students every year. First-year students starting their bachelor´s programme are accommodated as first after their request submission.

The "AFAD Accommodation Commission" decides on students' applications. The commission is headed by the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs and its members are representatives of the student part of the AFAD Academic Senate. The criteria for allocation of  accommodation are as follows:

  • distance from the place of residence
  • whether the applicant is a recipient of the financial need scholarship
  • whether the applicant is a handicapped student or a student with specific needs

An AFAD student or a newly admitted student who does not have a permanent residence in Bratislava can apply for accommodation on the basis of a written request for accommodation. The completed application must be submitted via AIS (in the left menu, Accommodation Application item). The application may also include decisive facts for accommodation allocation and the following step also allows to insert an attachment. The application can be saved after being revised.

Deadline for the application submission is 15 June of the current academic year in which the application is submitted.

The student is allocated accommodation for the entire academic year, not only for one semester. If the student decides not to accept the AFAD offer and find accommodation on his/her own, he/she is obliged to report this fact to the Study Office promptly.
