Accommodation for international students is available in several options:
- Main University dormitory (8b Klinskaja St.): accommodation of privileged categories of students in accordance with federal legislation, as well as foreign nationals studying on the quota of the Russian Government; there are currently no available beds in this accommodation;
- Off-campus accommodation alternatives: part-time international students.
Below is some basic information on the check-in process.
1. The university dormitory is provided for the accommodation of preferential categories of students in accordance with the federal legislation, as well as foreign nationals studying under the quota of the Government of the Russian Federation. If a place in the dormitory is allocated for you, a representative of the university will inform you. Please note that there are currently no beds available at this accommodation facility.
Address of the hostel: 8b Klinskaya St., Moscow.
Number of people per room: 3-5 people (depending on the size of the room).
The process of settling into a hostel takes place in several stages:
- Registration of the student at the hostel and processing of documents, including the signing of the accommodation contract;
- Obtain a temporary pass from the hostel administration;
- Obtaining bedding and keys;
- Migration registration (registration) in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation.
Obligatory documents for moving into a dormitory:
- Passport and Russian translation,
- Migration card,
- Medical documents (all documents must have a certified translation into Russian):
- A medical certificate 086-U or a similar medical certificate that proves you can study and live in a dormitory (the certificate must have a therapist's opinion as well as a dermatologist's note); additionally a dermatologist's opinion/certificate (in case the main medical certificate does not contain a dermatologist's opinion);
- a certificate that you do not have HIV;
- fluoroscopy results;
- Vaccination certificate (list of all vaccinations/inoculations administered; provided if available);
- results of a negative coronavirus test (if available);
- a valid VHI or OMS policy;
- 2 3 x 4 cm photos (black and white or colour on matt paper);
- an extract from the enrolment order and/or certificate of enrolment form No. 7 (can be ordered from the student office);
- consent to enter into a tenancy agreement (for minors).
On the day of check-in at the dormitory, come in person with the documents to the Migration and Visa Department for migration registration (registration). Reception mode Monday-Friday from 9.00 to 18.00, lunch from 13-14. In case of non-appearance on the check-in day and failure to register, the university has the right to terminate the contract of residence in the dormitory, as well as to expel the student for violation of the requirements of Russian migration legislation, so the timely registration is very important.
Students who are under the age of majority are required to complete all documents in the presence of one of their legal representatives - a parent or guardian. Legal representatives must have their identity document with them. A passport is best. Guardians or custodians must also present proof of custody or guardianship of the minor to the guardian.

You must also have enough money to cover the cost of your stay (in accordance with the rates) for at least 3 months when you move into a group residence.

Before moving into a hostel or other accommodation facility, it is necessary to discuss the possibility of migration registration with the administrator of the accommodation facility in advance before moving in. If for some reason you cannot be registered, it is necessary to choose another accommodation facility so as not to violate the migration requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation. Registration must be arranged on the day of arrival at the hostel.
In order to reduce the costs of arranging accommodation, we advise you to consider options outside the Moscow Ring Road, in the Moscow Region and New Moscow, and to plan to rent accommodation facilities as a group. In connection with federal legislation, please remember that foreign nationals must register with the migration authorities immediately upon arrival at their new place of residence (registration). The owner of the dwelling in which the foreigner is staying or residing is responsible for the registration. More information: https://www.gosuslugi.ru/167693/1/info
