In the context of globalization as an overall phenomenon and of the high standards in the field of academic education at the Community level, the universities are forced to adopt strategies in order to meet new challenges and to maintain a competitive level of the activities which they carry on. Starting from the premise that a university which assumes its success is developing permanently its ability to meet the needs of the different stakeholders, the main purpose of this paper is to highlight the critical perspectives of the students regarding the public services offered in the student dormitories, thus providing to the university management an honest feedback in order to enable the adoption of measures to improve and to attract or maintain the students. To achieve this, in terms of methodology, we have elaborated and we have used an online questionnaire, which we disseminated to the students accommodated in university campuses. The results obtained from this investigative approach reflect the shortcomings of the system, providing also the students’ testimonials and recommendations for improvement.
