Support Services & Facilities
The primary goal of our support services is to ensure the well-being of the postgraduate students and to maintain the high standard of studies that the Department offers. The School of Sciences library is an ideal environment for studying and offers a variety of printed and electronic resources. In addition, the Careers Office is the link between the Department and the jobs marketplace, enabling students to carry out internships and graduates to find work in companies that are affiliated with the Department. Finally, the Office of Student Affairs deals with students’ everyday issues and concerns, and assists them in finding effective solutions.
The Office of Student Affairs provides basic support for students’ accommodation in the University’s halls of residence and takes care of any issues related to students’ well-being. If you are a student, contact the Office of Student Affairs to learn more about the services you can be offered, including:

Such activities are organized by the Student Societies, which are independent student communities; any undergraduate or postgraduate student can join them or form their own Student Society. At the time of writing, there are the following Student Societies on campus:
Sports and Exercise
The department of Sports and Physical Education gives students the opportunity to engage in a range of activities, according to their interests and preferences. One of its goals is also to represent the university, through its teams, during panhellenic university events, at the university’s annual Culture Week or in European/international university competitions.
Students can join track and field programmes, as well as cycling, tennis, volleyball and basketball teams. There are also dance, chess and taekwondo teams. Team sports classes are held 2-3 times a week at the public indoor gym and at the Karlovasi public stadium. Individual sports classes are held at University buildings or private facilities. Occasionally, the Department’s students have taken part in swimming, trail running and ski contests. There are also many students who take part in local sports events.
