International students can live in student dormitory or have the university arrange an apartment or room in which to stay.
Dorms consist of eight rooms per floor, with 2-3 people per room. Each floor also has one kitchen and two toilets, and the basement has a shower. Students cannot select their own rooms. We encourage students to apply early, as the number of rooms are limited. Some students may not be comfortable with dorm rules, as they are often considered strict.
Apartment rent varies depending on the location, size and condition. Apartments offered for rent generally include furniture and basic household appliances, including a refrigerator, television and telephone. Average prices start at RUR 12,000 for a one-room apartment, while two-room apartments average at RUR 15,000. Utilities are not included in rent.
This is the best option for those looking to improve language proficiency.
