Lithuania is at a crossroad between west and east Europe, and throughout its complicated history has developed a unique culture, which encompasses both deep respect for traditions and robust wish to learn and innovate. We are members of EU and NATO, and are among the most bilingual and educated nations in Europe, however costs of living here are lower than in western countries, which makes Lithuania great for tourism, education or business.
Lithuanian people are simple, calm and can be somewhat shy with foreigners, but friendly and good-intended when you get to know them. We are keen to share our experience and the way of life with the rest of the world. If you plan to visit, you are certain to leave with dozens of new friends. For inspiration, go through the „living in Lithuania“ section of this site, take a look at the official webpage of Lithuania or the website for tourism in Lithuania. There is a lot our country has to offer!

All universities offer the opportunity of living in a hall of residence. Some of the halls of residence are situated near the universities, others, in the city centre. Some are further away so you will have to use public transport to get to university. On the whole, these halls have been renovated and equipped with modern appliances; they all have internet access. You should know in advance not all residences have the same conditions. Usually, the residents of the hall share common showers and kitchen and students share their room with one or two other people, but this is offset by a comparatively low cost of living. Furthermore, living with a lot of students is an experience which will never be forgotten. - See more at: http://www.studyinlithuania.lt/en/living_in_lithuania/accommodation/accommodationincampuses#sthash.1mjF0EpM.dpuf
