Exchange students are offered accommodation in the student hostel on Ausekla street 25a. As soon as your application form is received, International Office will make a room reservation for you.
Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences offers only double rooms for its students. All rooms are fully furnished. A bathroom and toilet is shared between four students (two rooms). Several rooms share one kitchen equipped with a fridge and cooking facilities. Most students prepare their own food in the kitchens at the student hostels; this will be slightly cheaper than buying your food at cafeterias and canatines in Valmiera. However, you have to bring, borrow or buy the things you need for the kitchen and cooking. Bed linen is provided by the university and changed every two weeks. A place in a double room in the student hostel costs EUR 70 per month. Exchange students live together with the local students and usually also share a room with a local student.
Another possibility for accommodation is finding an apartment. International Office will provide assistance in finding the best solution for your stay.
