Practical Information
__________________________________________________________________________
Finding accomodation
____________________

Some universities have their own student dormitories, others provide assistance with housing search (studyinlatvia.lv database provides information on accomodation arrangments offered by each university in the section on Provider information). You should ask the foreign student advisor at your chosen university for advice, since the housing market in Latvia is not very easy to navigate even for locals.
Arrival at the university
____________________

Upon arrival at the university, the student meets with university representatives in order to become acquainted with the programme and to receive answers to any questions. Most frequently it is the staff of the external relations division or members of the student council who look after visiting students. The wellbeing of students is important to each university, thus universities take care to inform foreign students about university life and to involve them in social activities. Latvian students have always been helpful and friendly. Most often it is the student councils which organize student activities and social life, and membership in these student organizations is open to foreign students as well.
