The main venue for seminars and workshops is Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences building on Cesu iela 4. This is the main building of the university with excellent facilities for lectures and workshops of the summer school. There is also a library with individual reading rooms and computer facilities.


Summer school participants reside at the university student hostel on Ausekla iela 25 a.  The hostel is located on the southern edge of Valmiera, about 20 minute walk from the city center and the central university building. Summer school participants can either walk, use public buses or rental bikes to get around in Valmiera.

The participants will be accommodated in single rooms. A bathroom, shared by 2 participants, has a toilet and a shower.  Shared kitchen facilities are also available for the participants. Bed linen, blankets and a towel will be provided, but we recommend you bring additional towels for trips and other events which can also include swimming if the weather is hot. 

During the summer school, breakfast is served on the first floor of the student hostel.
