Accommodation

International students may live in the students’ dorm or have an apartment or a room arranged for them by the University.

But the living conditions are rather Spartan: two or three persons to a room, eight rooms on each floor, one kitchen, two toilets, shower in the basement. Students cannot select their rooms. The number of rooms is limited, and, therefore, early applications will be given priority. In addition, some students may be uncomfortable with the rather strict dormitory rules.

Off-campus apartments Rent amounts depends on the location, size and condition of the apartment. As a rule, apartments offered for rent are supplied with furniture and basic household appliances (refrigerator, TV, telephone). Current average prices start at RUR 12,000 for one-room apartments and 15,000 for two-room apartments. Utility bills are not included in the rent.

Family stay. The best choice in terms of improving language proficiency is staying with a host family.
