Student services

Founded in 2010 with a few important tasks in mind. The council organizes and attends various sports events. It organizes LAN parties and thematic gatherings. It is involved in organization of field trips, recreational outings and all the fun campus activities.

Housing services

Algebra University is located in the western part of city of Zagreb. The location is Gradiscanska 24, 10000 Zagreb. Please note the public transportation in Zagreb is excellent and you will have no issues if you find your apartment further away from the campus. We do advise students to settle in city of Zagreb.

At this moment, Algebra University does not have a its own student dormitory. The construction of a student residence/dormitory owned by Algebra University is planned to start in the near future.

In light of this, students are advised to look for alternative options we recommend and you will find below.

For full time students we highly recommend having a long-term accommodation solution when applying for a visa. Please note the earlier you apply; the more affordable and various options are available.

The students are advised to start their accommodation search immediately once they complete the application process, pay the first-year tuition fee and receive a Letter of Acceptance.

Students should have a flexible budget starting from 400 EUR per month for accommodation. Prices in Zagreb typically range from 350 EUR (renting a room in larger shared apartments) to 1.500 EUR (larger apartments that can accommodate more people).

When the time comes, we connect students to our trusted partners: agencies which specialize in international student accommodation in Zagreb.

Library services

Aware of the development of the Internet and the omnipresence of Google and similar services, the Algebra University has not neglected the development of its library fund and the library as infrastructural support for studying. In this sense, we have published more than 50 books that cover all courses of our current professional study programmes for which there is no commercially available literature in the Croatian language. These books are included in the tuition fee and have a great ability to enable students to attend classes and take exams. The official literature which is not published by the Algebra University or Algebra is available in the internal reading room with at least 120% of copies in relation to the number of enrolled students, which means that each student can use all the literature necessary for classes until passing the exam in question.In addition to titles which are published by Algebra and specifically prepared for our study programmes, the University  has obtained nearly 2000 titles of recent technical literature (mainly in English) which are available to students in a total number of approximately 2500 copies at the reading room of the University.
