Low-Budget Accomodation


Concerned with issues of exclusion, inequalities as well as with possible alternatives and taking into account the global economic crisis in which precarity has become a worldwide reality affecting more and more people, the Organizing Committee of the ALICE INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM has put efforts to offer low-budget accommodation for all participants seeking alternative styles in housing.

Accomodation in student houses

SASUC, the Social Affairs Department of the University of Coimbra, will offer accommodation in Student Houses (in shared rooms) at the fare of 10€ per person per night for the nights between July 9th and July 13th, 2014 (check-out by noon on the 13th). A limited number of rooms (15 places for women and 15 for men) will be provided in the Residência POLO III . Due to the limited number of rooms they will be attributed in a first-come-first-served basis. To the total sum of the accommodation a deposit fee will be added. The result value will be paid through bank transfer. The deposit value will also be also returned by bank transfer immediately after the check-out, once verified that the room has not been damaged. Further details (as bank accounts and location of the rooms) will be sent to the participants’ email after the booking process is concluded.
Guidelines for Requests for Accommodation in Student Houses
1. Those who are interested must send an email to until June 6th, 2014. No reservations for this typology of accommodation will be accepted after this date.

Solidarity Accomodation
