We are reviewing housing options to ensure students will be properly supported in the event of illness outbreak. Your Program Manager will inform you if there are any changes specific to you program.
As a participant on an Arcadia program, you are guaranteed housing. Our priority is to provide a safe, clean, cost-effective and convenient place for you to live, while offering you every opportunity to explore the local culture and community. In Greece we provide shared apartments in buildings inhabited by Greek families and located outside of the tourist area of Athens in Pangrati.
If you have any special needs regarding your accommodation – dietary, medical, physical – please let us know when applying. Any information received will be treated as confidential and only shared with individuals involved in your housing placement.Arcadia University Housing Policy is detailed in our Student Handbook.
Pangrati is a residential neighborhood located near the original Olympic Stadium, from the 1896 games, and south of Vas. Konstantinou Avenue, one of Athens' major arteries. Made up of a mix of residences, cafes, shops, and businesses, Pangrati mirrors modern Greece, blending traditional nineteenth-century Athenian family residences and open-air markets with contemporary office buildings and trendy cafes and tavernas.

We will do our best to honor your housing preferences, however we cannot guarantee any specific housing assignments. Since housing considerations can vary, we have to reserve our right to change accommodation options at any time.
