Pula Student Centre

Pula Student Centre 

The Pula Student Centre of the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula operates to provide a complete service and the required level of student standards in the higher education system. It was established as an independent institution on 1 July 2007, but in line with the principle of an integrated university, following the decision of the Senate, it has been operating as a component of the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula since 1 January 2008. An organised and systematic approach to improving student standards in Pula commenced in 1995, when the organisational unit of the Pula student standards within the Rijeka Student Centre was constituted.  

Food service

The meals for the students of Pula, subsidised through the so-called student X-card by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, are served in a state-of-the-art restaurant and pizzeria opened within the university campus, once the location of the Pula General Hospital, on 1 October 2015.

The newly opened hall provides accommodation to 136 students in 70 rooms. All rooms are well equipped and are, for the most part, double rooms. Each room includes bathroom and toilet, fridge, TV, free internet access, heating, bed linen. There is a computer room, multifunctional hall for meetings, presentations, conferences and sports facilities, as well as the laundry facility with washers and driers at students’ disposal within the hall. Four rooms are fully furnished for people with disabilities and there is an access for wheelchair users. The hall’s offer includes four high quality suites for visiting professors with a capacity of up to eight people. A high level of safety is ensured thanks to a fire fighting system, video surveillance and entry and exit control (e-card, 24 hour reception).

In summer, the accommodation capacity of the Student Residence Hall is available for the purpose of ensuring accommodation to participants of international projects, mobility programmes, summer schools, Erasmus and Ceepus programmes as well as other similar forms of partnership and cooperation within the increased international cooperation activities accomplished by the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula in the area of science, education, professional development and sports. 

With the realisation of the project to build a new student residence hall (two pavilions), for which the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula is applying to the call published by the Croatian Ministry of Regional Development and EU funds, the Pula Student Residence Hall will have at its disposal 248 new beds. With the total accommodation capacity of 384 beds, Pula will be among the leading cities in Croatia when it comes to the number of students accommodated in halls.

Student Service

There is a Student Service within the Student Centre providing temporary and occasional employment to students and pupils in their final years of secondary education. Throughout the year and especially in the summertime, the Student Service ensures additional income to over two thousand students thus helping them to improve their standard of living and gain first work experience.

The Student Centre Pula is making further efforts aimed at increasing accommodation capacity and ensuring additional amenities to support other activities and needs of students, such as sports, cultural and entertainment activities. The activities of the Pula SC are oriented towards ensuring a comprehensive complex enabling a high quality of student life. The SC supports the activities of the Student choir as well as the activities of many student associations.    

The services offered within the Pula Student Centre’s scope of activities, namely food, accommodation and employment, are aimed at contributing to the development of student standards on an ongoing basis and thereby to the standards of the broader academic community.
