Why choose campus accommodation
The international student hostel is the best option for international students arriving in Russia, especially for the first semester.
• Convenience – the hostel is close to everything you need on campus.
• Safety – 24-hour security mean that the international hostel is very secure.
• Support – The KEC office is less than 5 minutes’ walk from the accommodation, so if any problems arise, the Student Services team can deal with them very quickly.

The hostels allow wired internet access via an Ethernet cable (provided).
There is a landline telephone in your room, which requires a pre-paid telephone card (available on campus). These cards cannot be used to call internationally and even local calls will be relatively expensive. We recommend using an internet phone service (such as Skype or Wechat) for making international calls.
There are communal laundry rooms on each floor. Machines are automatic, but you will need to add your own laundry detergent.
Post from home can be delivered and will be stored at reception in hostel.
