Erasmus Student Network
ESN UNIZA is a part of ESN Slovakia, nestled in north-western Slovakia around 200 kilometres from the capital Bratislava in town Žilina.
Our student organisation started its existence in April 2008. We are here to help students who are coming to Žilina as a part of their international study abroad. Our aim is to ensure that International Exchange students receive the warmest welcome and feel integrated in our community. We organise events and parties throughout the year so that you can get to know other Exchange students, discover Žilina and the rest of Slovakia, as well as some of Slovak customs and traditions.
We are also here to answer any questions as best we can. And if we don’t know the answer, we’ll try and find out, or point you in the right direction. So if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Description of Section
Small section, with growing numbers of incoming Erasmus students and team members. We are trying to deliver the best experience from stay in our city and university, and make it an unforgettable memory. Our organization structure is quite open and linear, while there is 4-6 active members. We prefer to work together on all events and projects, so every member of ESN UNIZA can take his part. Thus we don’t have traditional “one to one” buddy system, but we use everyone available. Erasmus students can get to know all team from begging and become friends with everybody.
