Incoming students who are planning to live in the dormitory of Kaunas University of Applied Sciences are provided with a place to live from the day of their arrival. Students are given the keys on the day of their arrival.

Students who must self-isolate will have to stay in our dormitory and follow all the self-isolation rules. Students who must self-isolate will be provided with rooms with individual entrance, sanitary equipment and kitchen. Students who arrive on the same day might be self-isolated in the same room.

Our institution cannot assure hotels providing self-isolation services will have sufficient places for all the people willing to stay there.
