Ventspils University College has every reason to be proud of one of the best student dormitories in Latvia. It is located in the same building as the university, so if there is a storm raging outside, you can simply take the glass passage connecting the dormitory with the university premises. The dormitory is located on two blocks of the university building – on the sixth and eighth floors in spacious, bright, and comfortable premises, and students live in each room. The “ventspils-guest” Wi-Fi that is accessible in the dormitory is maintained by the Ventspils Digital Centre.
Just like in any hotel, each room has a separate shower, so you don’t have to worry about waiting in line to shower and freezing in the cold hallways. There are several kitchenettes on each floor which the students use to cook but, if laziness prevails, the café Panorama on the sixth floor of the dormitory offers great food and a fantastic view of the sea.
