Student Accommodation

Students are advised to book accommodation early, since July is a very busy period.

There exist affordable hotels that are either in walking distance from the Summer School venue (i.e., within a 20-minutes walking radius from the campus), or easily reachable via public transport. (see map). Other inexpensive options do exist, though these might involve a longer commuting time. There is, of course, an abundance of hotel rooms in the city of Chania itself.
