The opening of House of Letters is expected in the autumn of 2023. And like the House of Science, it is the second stage of development of the University of Latvia Academic Centre. Currently, the House of Letters is in the design stage.

Rector of the University of Latvia, Indriķis Muižnieks: “Step by step, the next project of the Academic Centre of the University of Latvia is successfully moving towards the set goal. The already existing buildings - the House of Nature and House of Science - with a comfortable and pleasant environment for studies and research, are one of the most attractive higher education institutions in the Baltic region, and its potential will increase with each project implemented. With the opening of the House of Letters, most of the faculties of the University of Latvia will be located in one place, which will provide an opportunity to work and develop in cooperation and synergy, and allow Latvia's largest university to become even more attractive and competitive both locally and internationally.
