Living in Nicosia

Are you a future medical student who loves adventures and new experiences? Have you ever dreamed of living abroad in a beautiful city with the ability to explore? If so, the University of Nicosia is the place for you! While you pursue your education, you’ll have the opportunity to live in Nicosia, Cyprus — an island located in the Mediterranean Sea.

Nicosia — the capital of Cyprus and the country’s largest city offers a fascinating blend of lifestyles, culture, and history. Discover what it’s like to live in Nicosia as a student!

Something for everyone

From a centuries-old walled city centre that sees monuments in close proximity to late-night clubs, to downtown bargain shopping and brand-new suburban malls, and a range of local and international restaurants to suit every palate and budget, Nicosia has something for everyone. And the compact size of Cyprus means that world-famous beaches or charming mountain villages are equally easy to reach — no more than a 45-minute drive from Nicosia. If you’re up for it, at certain times of year you could go skiing in the mountains in the morning and then hit the beach for a swim in the afternoon.

Enrich your mind and body

Cultural activities include museums, art galleries, theatres, and cinemas. Live concerts feature throughout the year, with recent performances ranging from leading opera companies to major world music stars. For those who are just as keen to exercise their bodies as their minds, the University of Nicosia offers a fully equipped gym. In addition, there are municipal swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, and running tracks. You can also join a private health club, from those providing fitness classes to all-inclusive sports complexes at major hotels.
