spots in modern apartment-like dorms are offered to HSE students.
Spots in dorms are guaranteed to all nonresident students, except those who live up to eight zones away from Moscow along rail transport routes, who enroll both in state-funded places and fee-paying places. Each ‘apartment’ has its own kitchen and bathroom and is equipped with all necessary appliances. All residents have access to free Wi-Fi.
The territory is secured, and students are able to enter the dorm with an electronic pass at any time.
The dorm is also made available to applicants during entrance exams.
By the start of the new academic year additional 473 spots will be made available to international students in HSE guesthouse.
After HSE University transitioned to distance learning, life in the HSE dormitories changed: most students have gone home. The number of onsite staff and service employees has been reduced. Large events have been cancelled. Student trips into the city have been limited. HSE University Life spoke with students and staff about what life under quarantine is like in the dorms.
