Dormitories & Accommodation

Four well-equipped, comfortable, and modern dormitories provide international students with accommodation for study periods at MGIMO. Students usually share a double room in the 14-floor dormitory on campus, with a shared kitchen on every floor, washing machines, and nearby dry cleaners. The University has a network of canteens and cafes, providing quality service to thousands of visitors, catering to a variety of tastes – from the classic student canteens to sushi bars and pizzerias. Students wishing to live off campus will find abundant affordable, for Moscow, accommodation to rent near the campus.

General Location and Transportation

MGIMO is located in a picturesque green area of southern Moscow, home to several higher education institutions, and considered upmarket and safe. The nearby commercial facilities and recreational spaces ensure a comfortable daily life for international students. They can buy everything they need in grocery stores, markets, and two shopping malls, and dine in a diverse range of restaurants and cafeterias. Easily accessible recreational pursuits include walking and jogging in nearby gardens, cinemas, and a bowling alley, with the center of Moscow only 20 minutes away by metro, for access to the delights of one of the world’s largest, most vibrant, and diverse cities. The University is between two Red Line metro stations – “Yugo-Zapadnaya (South West)” and “Prospect Vernadskogo”. From either metro station run mini buses which will convey students directly to MGIMO, with bus and trolley bus services also available.
