Student life in Varna F.A.Q

Housing? Food? Leisure? It’s all here.

Your classes are in the following buildings, just click on these links and it will take you the google maps:

You can get it through A1, vivacom or telenor. The staff there speaks English and you can pick out your plan. They usually are in the 30-40 lev range. It is not necessary to get a SIM card since most british and German tele providers are accessible here.

St. Ana medical center is the emergency hospital in Varna. You have to go there with your Bulgarian ID. Otherwise for a GP consult contact:

For those of you who want a quick and affordable meal, use the University canteen in the main building. They offer very good value for money food. And don’t forget to bring your Library card to get that cheeky discount. Disclaimer: The food is not necessarily Michelin starred. 

For football fans, there is the spartak football pitch near the HEI building. Bookings can be made online or by phone.  +359884207787

For other sports, there are venues in and around the Sea Garden.

Missing home food is one of the worst things about studying abroad. These places will help you stay sane till you get back home: Happy Restaurant, Turkish orient, LeChef, Godzilla, etc

Varna has plenty of supermarkets. Don’t be intimidated by the lack of familiar brands in small shops around the city; many large supermarket chains have international products as in your home country and you can find what you need in shops like Lidl, Kaufland, Billa, BulMag, CBA, My Market, Pakmart, etc.

Have fun and chillax at the various bars right on the beach. For clubbing we suggest you check out horizont, avenue, rubiks or opium.
