ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS FOR ERASMUS STUDENTS
These dormitories are run by the Credit and Accomodation Institution (YURT-KUR). Erasmus Office will make reservation for the students. Students share their rooms with 8 students and the room may change according to the availablity.
B. HOMESTAY WITH TRAKYA UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
The Erasmus Coordinatorship will arrange a flat with a Turkish student for our incoming students if they choose this option. Our university offers and recommends “homestay with students” as an accommodation facility. The procedures related to accommodation between host and guest students are carried out by the Erasmus Office and in the case of difficulties, the Erasmus Office directly intervenes. Rent collection is on the 1st of each month.
C. FOREIGN STUDENTS HOUSE
There are limited rooms available in “foreign students house”: 1 single room, 1 room for 2 people, 2 rooms for 4 people and 1 room for 3 people. Therefore, we cannot guarantee availability. After all the applications are taken, a commission led by the Erasmus Institutional Coordinator will announce a list of students who will be placed in the Foreign Students House. If their first choices are not available, they will be placed in a different room of choice.
Erasmus students are accepted only for one semester. They must apply for a room and renew their registration at the end of each semester if they would like to prolong their stay. The accommodation fee is 5 Euros per day.
Please inform us about your arrival dates before 1 month, contact with your buddy who you will be informed later (after you are nominated to be Erasmus Incoming Student to Trakya University) by Erasmus Office and visit the Erasmus Office after you have arrived to Edirne.
The course registration will take place in the first week of the semester. Use the Changes Page of the Learning Agreement if you need to make changes to your course selection. The host institution will provide you with a Student Identity Card.
Every exchange student is assigned an academic advisor once the registration is completed. The advisor is responsible for providing academic guidance to an incoming student. He/she monitors the student’s academic development during the exchange period at Trakya University.

The International Relations Office buddy system is designed to assist newly arrived Erasmus students. The new students are matched up with their buddies. These are students who are already familiar with the university and the city and who can offer support on different topics regarding studying and daily life. Many things are easier when you are not alone. Each buddy is based on the needs and possibilities of the respective partner. Participants can also plan free time activities together.
