Once you have all paperwork in place (including getting the signature of the Departmental Erasmus Coordinator Dr Karatzaferi on your Learning Agreement, and the final approvals from your institution), it is important that you arrange for your accommodation at the city of Trikala.

The city of Trikala doesn’t have a dedicated students’ accommodation. Thus it is important to plan in advance for private accommodation, ideally in the months of June/July preceding the academic year you intend to travel.

To help you find appropriate accommodation the DPESS -Erasmus Hosting Committee members (Dr Voutselas and/or Mrs Blanti for Undergraduate students OR Dr Krommydas and/or Prof Hatzigeorgiadis for Postgraduate students) are available to help. If by chance you are to make your own arrangements for accommodation, it is also critical to say so! So please drop us a line (see contacts below).

Usually shared accommodation is booked to host pairs or small groups of incoming Erasmus students together.

Upon arrival it is important to visit/notify the IRO (see AND to make an appointment with your Departmental Coordinator to get informed about the Courses Timetable.

Note that it is possible to amend the Learning Agreement during your visit if need arises (see

When it is time to depart, following the exams period of your last semester with us, apart from the Transcript of Records (issued by the secretariat of our department) you will need a Certificate of Attendance (issued by the IRO).
