There are multiple accommodation options in VIA’s campus cities – dormitories, private apartments, house sharing – depending on preference and the length of your stay. Dormitories and house sharing offer great opportunities for socialising and meeting new friends and are more affordable. On the other hand, you own apartment will provide privacy and freedom.
