Please note that housing for the Fall 2019 semester is subject to change.

Accommodation Abroad students stay in one of two hotels, Metropolitan Hotel & Queen Olga Hotel, located one block away from Thessaloniki’s waterfront, a five-minute walk to grocery stores and shops, and a ten-minute bus ride from downtown Thessaloniki. The area is served by a number of bus lines, and both bus stops and taxi stands are located near the hotels. Greece students will live with one roommate in the hotel. You will receive your roommate assignments upon arrival. We are unable to accommodate roommate requests.

Each room is equipped with standard furnishings, as well as a bathroom with a shower and hairdryer. Several study lounges are available to students, and the building also features a 24/7 reception desk and housekeeping. Additional amenities at both hotels include:

  • Television
  • Small refrigerator
  • Air conditioning and heating
  • Wireless internet throughout the hotel
  • Cleaning service twice a week
  • Breakfast and dinner, daily
  • Laundry service (wash, dry, and iron) in the hotel neighborhood for a fee

Students must bring their own electronic shavers and similar devices, which will likely need to be used with an adapter. Please note that, as a protection against fire hazards, the use of hot plates, water boilers, and irons is prohibited in the rooms.

The student housing in Greece provides daily, buffet-style breakfast and dinner for students. The hotel adapts food offerings based on student and staff feedback, but it is especially important that students notify The Program of any dietary restrictions in their enrollment paperwork so that the hotel can be aware of any concerns prior to the program start date. The hotel offers a nutritious variety of food incorporating traditional Greek cuisine and other cultural influences. students will need to purchase their own lunch each day. On weekdays, the café at ACT offers a variety of hot- and cold-meal options, including sandwiches, salads, and other entrees and snacks. Most students spend approximately $5-10 U.S. dollars for lunch on weekdays. Weekend meals will vary based on personal preferences.
