Student dormitory – everything in one place!

Probably the best dormitory in Latvia. Significant renovation works completed in 2017. The dormitory is located in the same building complex as the university. There is a saying among the people of the university - with slippers from home to lectures. There are more than 600 beds available and rent is only EUR 62 per month. The pride of the students is also the newly built modern student lounge - rather a complex, where it is possible to play a variety of board games, including pool table and ping-pong. Free Wi-Fi, laundry room, double and single rooms, large parking lot, cafe in the same building and even more benefits for the comfort of VUAS students.

I am a student from Languages and Intercultural Communication Programm. I chose the programm because I do like learning langugaes and its description matched my preferences. During studies itself there were some drawbacks, but University administartion reacted very fast and worked their best to find solutions.
Quality education system, clean and maintained dormitory. 4 stars because response/instructions from few professors/lecturers are not satisfactory.
