At present; only students who have passed the exams of the Ministry of Education & Religions of Greece and have enrolled at the University of Crete, have the opportunity to submit online in order to apply for free accommodation in student dormitories. Current students’ applications should be submitted each year in the spring following the respective announcement of the Office of Student Affairs ( www.merimna.uoc.gr ).
First-year students submit their application in September during registration. The selection of students is made on the recommendation of the relevant committee and approval of the Rector's Council on the basis of their ranking and given the capacity of available halls of residence. The ranking is determined by a points system, which is based on economic and social criteria of the student's family, according to a decision of the Senate of the University of Crete and based on documents that accompany each application.
