Ivan Franko National University of Lviv is a classical university in Ukraine with a longstanding academic tradition and values, which secures the labor market with about 23,000 highly qualified competitively viable specialists.
There are 22 565 university students in 2022, so it proves that the institution is not only competitively viable but also popular among applicants.
One of the important University’s tasks is to fully provide students with places of residence. As approved by the Order of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv’s Rector on Student Dormitories and on the Campus Regulations, there are 10 dormitories, which form a campus where residents of other cities can live (as well as children deprived of parental care who are residents of other cities), postgraduates, applicants, foreigners, guests, and our university invitees.
As a result of the war, many citizens became internally displaced persons (IDP), including many students or applicants. That’s why this year Lviv university will be an even higher priority target for future students from different regions of Ukraine. Thus, we note that the housing requirements for these people are growing.
Currently, 4,681 students live in the university dormitories. An additional 1,200 places are needed. It is important to note that due to the current circumstances 1927 IDPs now are living in the dormitories of the University, so this need will grow day by day.
In 2018, the construction of one more dormitory at Pasichna Street, 62 in Lviv began, which according to the current project has 400 places exclusively for students. In 2021, with the support of the President of Ukraine, funds in the amount of UAH 44 million were allocated, but currently, the construction is suspended due to a lack of funds. UAH 103 million is a necessary sum of money to complete building and construction works.
We kindly note that the purpose of the earliest restoration and completion of construction is primarily the need for housing for internally displaced students or applicants.
In 2018, the construction of a new dormitory at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv was approved, and its construction began. The project was designed by Ihor Hnes, an associate professor at Lviv Polytechnic National University. According to the territorial zoning plan, the site can be used for a multi-story residential building. The maximum allowable tallness of the buildings is 33 m, and the land-use ratio is 37.4%. The distance from the dormitory № 5 should be at least 46 m. It is planned that the new dormitory will have a different number of storeys.

At the moment, there is a need for additional funding for the dormitory construction project, as the number of students entering Lviv National University will only increase because of the war.
We urge you to support the construction completion of the dormitory at Pasichna, Str., 62 in Lviv, which will be primarily aimed at internally displaced persons. As the demand for affordable and comfortable housing is increasing day by day, the completion of the project will be able to partially meet this need, as the dormitory will have about 400 places.
UAH 103 million is a necessary sum of money to complete building and construction works. If you are considering the possibility of allocating funds for the completion of the construction project, please write to us by e-mail or call us.
