The sources of Lithuanian Sports University are traced to the historical date, October 10, 1934, when by the decree of President of Lithuania Antanas Smetona the Higher Courses of Physical Education were set up offering a higher education degree.
With its mission to contribute to the sustainable development of society through international-level research and academic excellence, LSU is known as a leading academic and research centre in sports science in the Baltic Sea region.
LSU is the leading University in the area of sports science in the Baltic States. The research activities are performed in different areas of social and biomedical sciences, such as muscle and motor control, rehabilitation, sports coaching, physiology and genetics, public health, physical activity, social empowerment of the disabled and sports management.
The International Relations Office (IRO) offers support with the aim to create opportunities for local students to get a taste of Europe and for international students to experience the student life in Lithuania.
Each incoming student may apply for a living place in one of the students’ dormitories situated in the area of the University campus (Perkuno al. 3 and Aušros g. 42A).
Rooms are furnished with beds, closets, desk, and desk chairs. The student does not need to bring the bedding and bed linen, as he/she will get it in the dormitory, but the dormitory administration does not provide towels. The student also has to buy the kitchenware (flatware, cups, plates, etc.) upon arrival. The kitchen (bathroom as well) will be shared with other students. The rooms are supplied with an internet connection, but not computers, thus, the student has to bring his/her own computer or rent it upon arrival.
The LSU library with over 90 thousand publications offers a lounge area for visitors, reading rooms for group work and individual study with nearly 100 workplaces, and favorable conditions for students’ self-study in general.
