A Survey of the Quality of Accommodation Services is Being Conducted
Last year, at the initiative of the VMU Student Affairs department, a university-level „Survey of the Quality of Accommodation Services“ is being conducted for the very first time. The purpose of the survey is to find out the opinion of persons living in VMU dormitories about accommodation conditions and provided services.
We kindly invite students who live in VMU dormitories in Kaunas, Akademija (Kaunas District), or Vilnius to participate in this year’s survey and evaluate their opinions and suggestions, which would help to improve the performance and services provided in dormitories. We are hoping for ~10 minutes of your time, that you would dedicate to completing this questionnaire. The link to the survey was sent to all the residents by e-mail to their personal e-mail addresses. We invite you to fill in the survey by May 26, 2021.
Taking into account the results of last year survey, in order to create favorable and comfortable living conditions for students living in VMU dormitories, certain changes in dormitories have been implemented and certain goals for 2021 have been set:
