In addition, you will quickly learn what Russian hospitality means, and, in case you need any help, your host will always be there. You will live with a family selected by the university. You will have breakfast and dinner with them. When applying, give as much information about yourself as possible (interests, sports, dietary requirements, allergies, etc.).

Dormitories lack the comfort of a luxurious hotel, but they have certain advantages. You will find it easier to adapt to new conditions in a dorm. Other students, your neighbors, are happy to help you any time you need. Additionally, costs are considerably lower than those in any hotel. You will have a study/bedroom in the dormitory shared by a roommate. Bathroom and toilet facilities are often shared. The cost varies from 1,000 - 4,000 RUB per month.
