If you haven't filed the housing application, it means that you will be responsible for your accommodation.
After your housing application, KFU will provide you with an apartment option. After you arrive in Kazan, you will decide if you like it or not.
KFU can provide you with a maximum of two apartment choices. At least two weeks prior to your arrival in Kazan you will be informed of the type of accommodation that KFU has reserved for you.
If you do not like either apartment, you will have to arrange accommodation for yourself.
The following types of housing are available to international students. Please keep in mind that housing is not included in the cost of the program!
KFU is the only Russian higher education institution, which has enough housing units to accommodate all its students.
Normally, the dormitory is provided to those studying on main academic programs. As an exception, it can also be provided to students who arrive here for no less than one semester. The price varies depending on where you stay (270 rubles per month for the old dormitories, 540 rubles per month for the new dormitory “Universiade Village”).
Besides, some students may be unhappy with rather strict dormitory rules. For those who think that they will not be able live on such rules, we recommend thinking about Off-campus apartments or Family stay from the very beginning. Dormitory residence permission is granted only upon medical examination at either university or city student policlinic. Please bring along your X-ray and RW blood test results to the medical examination. If need be, X-ray and blood test can be taken in Kazan, providing you have a medical insurance valid in Russia.
