Artists in residence can chose from different types of accommodation:

Standard / riverside bedrooms in Kvennaskólinn (the so-called heimavist), or accommodation in houses Árbraut 33 (newly renovated) or Árbraut 35 next door. Houses can also be rented as a whole (4 people max.) All artists have access to communal living space and work/studio facilities in Kvennaskólinn as well as the TextileLab (not included in the residency fee), regardless of where they are staying. 

Basic linen and towels are supplied and included in the residency fee. Other essentials such as tea-towels, sponges, dish-washing brushes, toilet paper, dish soap, and washing machine detergent are also provided (for daily use only, not as work material!). Residents are responsible for all other living expenses. More detailed information on house rules, living expenses, etc. is provided in the Book of Answers here on our website. 

Please note that the residency is for artists in residence only; visitors are kindly asked to book guest accommodation in town.
