Living in the residencies

All the students living in the residencies have their personal passes they use to enter the residency. Residencies are guarded, workers stay in the residencies from 8.00 a.m. till 11.00 p.m. These measures help to prevent unauthorized access to the residencies.

At the beginning of the classes, different meetings take place. The participants of these meetings are the students, the vice-deans of the faculties for work in the residencies, residency administrators, residency workers, the heads of the student councils in the residencies. The students obtain information about their rights and duties, the rules of behavior in the residencies and information about leisure time organization.

Every September the elections of student councils of the faculties and residencies are carried out. The meetings of the students' councils in the residencies take place every week where the questions about student's life and leisure time are discussed.

In September the elections of the faculty and the Residency Student Council’s staff are held. Every week the Residency Student Council holds a meeting, during which they discuss students’ everyday life, free time, etc. The administration systematically controls and checks the sanitary state of rooms and places of common use as well as how well students keep to the hygienic norms. Based on the points, given to the students for keeping their accommodation clean, the competitions in the best room and the best residency are held.
