For 2020’s First-Year Students

Dear first-year students:

Below you will find a list of important steps, which you will need to complete by the end of August and in September to settle various organizational issues, so that your studies run smoothly and you can focus on learning.

1.  Move into a Dormitory 

 When: by August 31
 Places in HSE University dormitories are distributed to international students through their Personal Accounts.
 Access to the ‘Dormitory’ section in your Personal Account will be made available after filling in the ‘Consent for Studies’ section and completing recognition procedure (but no earlier than August 17, 2020).
 Upon your arrival for studies, a place in one of the HSE University dormitories will be reserved for you.
 You must download an accommodation referral for dormitory residence from your Personal Account, print it out and bring it to the dormitory.
 When moving into a dormitory, make sure you have the following documents:
