Recommendations for students living in ASP Students House:

The accommodation of new people in student dormitories is suspended and external visitors are forbidden.

In other matters, the recommendation of the Chief Sanitary Inspector applies.

The Chief Sanitary Inspector recommends that students leave their student housing if they have the option of other accommodation. The stay of other students in student dormitories should be organized in a way that allows a maximum limitation of contact between people, preferably in separate rooms with a separate sanitary facility.

MNISW recommendation: Please note that universities must provide accommodation for students (including foreigners) who cannot (for various reasons) leave the dormitory.


Administration Staff:

The Academy administration works on a part-time system during the suspension period.
