There come times when we have to make important decisions that impact the rest of our lives. One of these decisions is choosing a university—especially if the university is located far from home.

If you have already chosen HSE University, then it's time to make the next difficult decision: where to live in the big city. What will you choose: independence or convenience? City living or suburban living? Coliving with group of friends or a studio fit for an introvert?

We will tell you about the wide range of housing options HSE University offers students who need a place to live in a big city. Take your pick!

Key Information

In 2021, HSE is introducing a new scheme for accommodating international students that is modelled on housing programmes of other international universities. The new scheme allows students to choose the best housing option based on their preferences and financial resources.

As part of the new programme, the University will provide additional information and organizational services to help students with housing. The University will also continue to accommodate certain categories of students in its dormitories. All international undergraduate and graduate students receiving HSE scholarships (100% coverage of tuition fees) can submit a request for dorm accommodation in 2021.

Other students can use the services of the HSE Student Housing Office, whose tasks include accommodating students in the facilities rented by the university; advising students on all housing-related issues; liaising with partner rental agencies; and providing assistance to students living in apartments in the event of any housing issues.

Some accommodation options are currently at the final stage of approval. We will keep you updated, and you will soon be able to subscribe to our newsletter.


HSE is arranging alternative housing options for international students who do not receive standard dormitory accommodations.
