The University Centre of the Westfjords is located in the very north west of Iceland and has been a member of UArctic since 2006. It is the smallest institution operating on higher education level in Iceland and side events will here find a warm welcome in a cool environment. Rooms of various sizes are available within UW or in the town of Ísafjörður, with its 2500 inhabitants. As of the size of the town and the Centre, all events need to be tailor-made.
