RGSL does not have its own dormitory; however, accommodation can be arranged at dormitories of RGSL partner institutions. Depending on the institution and the number of inhabitants in a room, the costs can vary between approximately 50 EUR and 150 EUR per month.
If you are a national applicant, you will be informed of available dormitories before the start of the study year. If you are an international applicant, you will receive information on different accommodation possibilities shortly after receiving your admission results.
In many cases international students prefer to rent apartments together in groups of two or three. Rough estimated costing in Riga: housing: 150–350 EUR per month; living expenses: 250 EUR per month as a minimum. RGSL can assist you with more detailed information on housing facilities in Riga and with the names of other admitted students from your country.
A popular option among international students in Latvia is the student hostel “Prima”. Some of our students this year are happy to stay at the “Jakob Lenz” guest house. You can also check real estate agencies.
In case you are planning to stay at your relative’s apartment during the study year, your relative can provide you with a confirmation of the envisaged place of residence. Also, your relative can pledge to provide you with the necessary subsistence by submitting a written statement and proof of sufficient legal income to the Latvian Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs.
