Finding suitable accommodation can be sometimes challenging when you are coming to a new country. All new students are responsible themselves for making sure they have the necessary accommodation when entering Estonia for studies. The University can help by indicating the direction as to where to look for a place from.
The University is also mediating the places between dormitories and the students. It should be kept in mind though that applying for a dormitory place does not automatically mean that there is a place available. A lot of our students use private housing options.
NB! At the time of Covid-19 crisis, many students coming from or transiting a country with high infection rate are required to stay in self-isolation before they can join the courses at the university. (More information HERE). Please note that when first entering Estonia, you cannot do the self-isolation in the dormitory. You can either rent an apartment or find short-term accommodation at a hostel/hotel.
Center Hotel - special price (130-150 eur/ 2 weeks for TU students)
Private Room or Flat
Tallinn University Dormitory
Address: Karu Street 17 (on the main campus of Tallinn University - behind Terra building of Tallinn University - in the city centre).
We will make a waiting list of all students who have marked that they are interested in a place in the dormitory and have received acceptance from us. The number of dormitory places is limited and they are offered on a first apply – first receive basis.
Please register for the dormitory waiting list here.
We will make a waiting list and your name will be added to the waiting list after your documents have been accurately submitted in the online application system and you have received positive feedback from the university. We try to offer a place first to the students who need accommodation confirmation to apply for a visa.
The waiting list is updated continuously - for example, if one exchange student leaves, the vacant place is offered to the next exchange student on the waiting list. If you do not accept the place, you are removed from the waiting list, or put to the end of the list in case you decide later that you still need a place. The waiting lists are public and you can find yourself on the list by checking your birth date and gender.
If you are an exchange student staying for the entire academic year and you did not get a place in the dormitory in the autumn, please send an email to email@example.com by November 1 if you still wish to stay in a dormitory during the spring semester. We will then keep your name on the waiting list and you have a better chance of getting a place.
