Equipment and services
Each room is equipped with desks, bookshelves, and chairs. It has a shower, a toilet, and a kitchenette fitted with some cupboards, a refrigerator, and an electric kettle shared by students. You will probably need your own cutlery, pots and pans.
There is also a shared kitchen on every floor equipped with a gas cooker and a sink (hot & cold water). Sheets and a pillowcase are provided every month. You will need your own towels.
Each student’s house provides self-service launderettes called PRALNIA (you can buy tokens for one wash at the reception desk). Students themselves are required to clean their rooms. Please leave your room nice and clean when moving out, the way you would like to find it yourself upon arrival!
Every room is equipped with a telephone. Connections within the Campus and other dormitories (you dial only the last 4-digit numbers) are free of charge. You can also receive calls from the outside (if you live in DS. 11, your number will be 611 and the last 4-digit numbers; if you live in DS. 10, your number will be 612 and the last 4-digit numbers ) and from abroad (in DS. 11 +48 56 611 and the last 4-digit numbers; in DS. 10 +48 56 612 and the last 4-digit numbers).
The Internet network is available in all student dormitories (every room is connected to it for free); however, you should have your own computer or notebook and open a university account to be able to access it. Additionally, you have to buy a special cable (around 10 zł in every computer shop in Toruń) to be able to plug in.
There is a Reception in each dormitory which is open 24 hours. It is a place from which you get keys to your room and where you leave them each time you go out of the building.
