The Transcript consists basically of a list of the course units taken, the exams passed and the credits gained by the student so far.

In case the above documents do not reach our International Office within one month (following the acknowledgement/acceptance e-mail), the student’s nomination will no longer be valid.

Nominated students are advised to contact ESN Ioannina ( for an "ESNer friend" during their stay in Ioannina.
A Greek Language certificate (min. B1) is required only for Greek language and classic studies (at the Department of Philology). For all other fields of study an English Language certificate (min. B1, as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) is required.
Level B2 in English, is strongly recommended, particularly for those taking Master level courses (2nd study cycle). Every student’s nomination should be supported by a recognized English certificate. Alternatively, proof of sufficient level of competence in the English language should be submitted.
DEPARTMENTS (Fields of study)
Students are required to choose a major field of study according to the Inter-institutional agreement signed between the home and host Universities. Usually, students may be free to follow courses in other fields.
However, students can enroll in any extra subject from other subject areas provided that: 1) they do not represent the majority of the Learning Agreement, 2) the academic advisor is in agreement with the Learning Agreement prior to the arrival of the student.

In any case, before filing their Learning Agreement, students are strongly advised to contact the respective Departmental Coordinator.​

Formally nominted (by the home University) students, for a study/learning mobility period, may contact the Housing Office ( to file an application for a room in the halls.
Deadlines to apply:
1st semester: 15th June
2nd semester: 30th November

The Accommodation Office will make every effort to accommodate Erasmus Students in Student Residence Halls (rooms with en suite bathroom facilities).
Applications are accepted and processed on a first-come first-served basis, until a maximum number of approx. 40 rooms per academic year is reached.

For more information please feel free to contact Mrs Ioanna Fotou (mail to:, Tel: +30 26510 09132).

The cost of a single room is 65 euro/month

The cost of a double room is 50 euro/month/person

Upon arrival, a deposit (guarantee) which equals the monthly rate of the room is requested by the student.

All rooms are usually available for Erasmus students

  • from 1st October to the first week of February for the 1st semester (or the full academic year depending on the chosen mobility duration)
  • from 15th February to the end of June for the 2nd semester

In case of prolongation requests, these will have to be submitted to the accommodation office no later than 1st November, but it is highly unlikely that a room at the Halls of Residence will be offered for prolongation periods, since students nominated for the 2nd semester will have priority.

Private temporary (furnished) accommodation in Ioannina is very scarce, yet assistance may be offered by our International Relations Office, however with no guarantees that prospective Erasmus students may find appropriate housing solutions outside the campus at a reasonable price.

Formally nominated (by the home University) students, for a interniship/placement/traineeship mobility period, may only file an application for accommodation at the University Guest House.
Students may contact the Housing Office ( to discuss this option, request more information or file an application.
