About VNF


Living on campus offers you an opportunity to be part of a community and many students therefore choose to live in the halls of residence. The four halls next to the college building accommodate 160 students. There are two- or three-room flats with a communal pantry and shower room. The kitchen has a cooker, a fridge and a microwave oven. Next to the halls are the town park and the Svartå river with strolling paths on its banks. This is a scene of natural beauty throughout the year. The town centre with shops, banks, a health centre, chemist’s shops, library, bus station, railway station, cinema, theatre and pubs is ten minutes’ walk away.

All flats have a wireless internet connection. A small fee is charged for access to the internet on campus. If you do not have your own computer to use in your room, please enquire at the study office about renting a laptop.

Normally two students share a room. If you want a single room, please enquire about availability. There is an extra weekly charge for single rooms. 

Please note that you need to have your own insurance covering your personal belongings and accident insurance for your leisure time.
