The Cyprus University of Technology (Tepak) announced on Friday that it was launching a tender process for flat owners in Paphos to provide student housing.

Tepak said that they were looking for flats in good condition, from studios to three bedrooms, preferably within a radius of two kilometres from the university building on Ambelokipon and Panagia Pantanassas Streets, Paphos.

Apartments located further away are also accepted but priority will be given to those located closest to the university.

The university said that the apartments should be furnished with a bed, a closet, a desk and chair, a couch, a table and chairs for the kitchen, a stove and oven, a refrigerator, and A/C units.

According to the announcement, the university will also accept applicants with flats that are not furnished, but need to have at least an oven, refrigerator, and A/C unit.

A floor plan of the apartment and some photos (exterior of the building and interior of the apartment) must be submitted with the declaration of interest. The apartments should be ready for delivery in the first fortnight of September 2023.

The rental period will last one year with the right to renew for a total of three years. There is also the possibility of concluding 10-month contracts (September-June) every year, if this is agreed between the owner and the tenant. With the declaration of interest, the monthly rent requirement per apartment must be submitted, as well as a report on whether or not the rent covers any other services (e.g. internet, water, electricity, etc.)

Apartment owners can submit their applications here: until May 31.

If an individual has more than one apartment to offer, than a separate application must be filled out for each flat.
