Ventspils University College with good reason is proud with one of the best student hostels in Latvia. It is located under the same roof as the VUC and in the case of storm, rain or snow students can make their way towards knowledge through a closed glass passage that links the hostel with the university college. The hostel is situated in two blocks of the VUC building – in six and eight floors accordingly. There are spacious, light and facilitated premises, two students live in every room. Free internet available in all building.
Like in any other good hostel there is a separate shower for every room therefore there are no worries that anyone would have to stand in a long queue or to shiver in cold corridors while waiting. There are several kitchens on every floor that students use for making food while in situations when laziness gains an advantage it is possible to go to a café “Panorāma” that is located on the 6th floor of the hostel offering a breath-taking view at the sea.
