The main reception facility is the Asylum Home in Ljubljana, which accommodates up to 710 persons. Until 2015, this was the only reception centre in Slovenia. In 2023, the Asylum Home accommodated mostly single men, the Kotnikova Branch Facility in Ljubljana exclusively hosted single men and the Logatec Branch Facility served as a reception/accommodation centre for asylum seekers, applicants for temporary protection and temporary protection holders, especially women, families and children. In the beginning of 2024, the decision was made to move temporary protection holders in other UOIM facilities in order to get additional capacity for asylum seekers.[1] The Student Dormitory Postojna can accommodate up to 22 unaccompanied children.

Applicants can also request to reside in private accommodation (see Forms and Levels of Material Reception Conditions). 15 asylum seekers were living in private accommodation at the end of 2023.[2]

In the case of the Border Procedure, yet to be applied, persons expressing the intention to seek asylum can also be accommodated “close to the border”, if the requisite material reception conditions are guaranteed.[3] Other types of accommodation are not used in practice.
