The UVMP in Košice has two dormitories situated about 10 minute walk from the university. Typical yellow building (lower one) and blue building (higher one) are located on Cesta pod Hradovou 11-13, 040 01 Košice. Capacity of the dormitories is over 400 rooms. Dormitory buildings are divided into ten or nine floors, each floor consists of two corridors with 20 rooms in total. Bathrooms and toilets are shared and were partially reconstructed. There are also shared kitchens at each floor equipped with microwave and cooker with oven. Available are also common rooms which can be used for study or for fun.
Study rooms for studying without interruption can be found in yellow dormitory on the fifth floor, in blue dormitory on the first floor. Keys from these rooms are available at a reception upon showing your student ISIC card. Washing and ironing are available for a small fee, a vacuum cleaner is available for free. Keys from laundry, flat iron and vacuum cleaner are also available at the reception.
Rooms are equipped with beds, wardrobes, tables with chairs, cabinets, fridge, table lamps or bed sheets. The bed sheets are available at a doorkeeper on request and you can change them every month on a day specified ahead, which is always written down on a board at dormitory entrance hall. It is prohibited to have your own electronic equipment in a room (e.g. boiling plate, flat iron, microwave, etc.), only kettle is accepted during room control. Accommodation in either single room or double room depends on the current number of accommodated students and availability of rooms.
Unlimited internet access is included in a room price using Wi-Fi or LAN cable. You just have to register your computer, notebook or smartphone at IT department (personally or via e-mail), including your first name and surname, e-mail, personal identification number, dormitory you live in (SD1 – yellow, SD2 – blue), floor, room number, device type (notebook/table computer), hardware MAC address of your network.
Both dormitories are under protection of own university security. The service is provided 24 hours a day. Personal identification using your student ISIC card is necessary when returning late at night. Visitors are allowed by 10 p.m. and every visitor must register himself to a book of visitors at the entrance and write himself off at departure. If you would like to shelter someone for a night, check additional fees at the university website. Next to dormitories is a supervised parking lot where places for students are available. Be careful about receiving “records” that can be given by a doorkeeper for disturbing peace, disorderliness and damaging dormitory facilities. In case of repeated records, disciplinary proceedings at the university can be initiated against you.
