Though University Centre services are largely focused on students attending classes through teleconferencing facilities, it is strongly emphasised that the University Centre is there for all university distance learning students.
Please note that participants need to reserve accommodation on their own. Participants are encouraged not to wait too long to book their accommodation as the summer months are usually busy.
The University Centre has a small library with a collection of books and other media. The largest part of our resources are acquired for the master study programmes Coastal and Marine Management, and Coastal Communities and Regional Development. It is therefore a highly specialized library, but also balanced, in accordance with the diverse topics taught on the programmes.
The University Centre of the Westfjords offers students access to wireless internet. It is anticipated that students have laptop computers with wireless internet cards, though it is possible to set up wired internet connections for students in exceptional circumstances. The wireless connection requires a password to access which you receive from the staff.
