The Rector of the Kraków University of Economics Stanisław Mazur said, some students have recently admitted that they cannot afford accommodation in Kraków because of high rental prices.

"We hear signals from students that they have to quit their studies for economic reasons. So far, the scale of the phenomenon is unrecognized," he said. Prof. Waldemar Tłokiński, President of the Conference of Rectors of Public Vocational Schools, said that the number of master's students has decreased.

People who were only planning to start university studies are also resigning due to financial difficulties, he added .
