​Students who come to study at the UM from other cities and countries need quality accommodation. UM Student Dormitories offer almost 3,000 beds. We can offer you accommodation in 3 campuses: Gosposvetska, Tyrševa and Quadro. The rooms are mostly double rooms; kitchen, bathroom and toilets are shared. Students may, under certain conditions, receive accommodation subsidy during their study. ​​



​During the academic year, many students stay away from home and need a personal physician. The​ right to medical treatment in Slovenia depends on your health insurance coverage. ​You can find information on student health insurance at Health insurance (S​ource: Study in Slovenia).​​​
