    The student campus housing up to 7000 students comprises 17 halls of residence and 2 public buildings—sports centre and recreation centre. The halls of residence are high-rise towers of three shapes: square, circular, and octagonal. The structure of all these buildings is uniform: in the centre, there is a top-lit courtyard covered with a glazed roof at first floor level and serving as lobby and space for independent studies. From the second floor up, there are student suites for two to five students. Twelve-storied buildings, both free-standing and resting on a common plinth in twos or threes, are located on the perimeter of the campus. The alternating shapes—rectangle, cylinder, octagonal prism—as well as colour variations diversify the even rhythm of the street front. The public buildings are located inside the campus neighbourhood. Both are shaped as  conic frusta, straight (Recreation Centre) and upside-down (Sports Centre). The  four-storied Sports Centre includes a 25x16 m swimming pool, gyms, a race track, etc. The Recreation Centre houses dining rooms, medical facilities, a dance hall equipped with a bar, etc. All these functions are grouped around a spiraled staircase in the centre.  

    Gross floor area: 242 003 sq.m , including:

    • halls of residence— 226 416 sq.m ,
    • sports centre—11 240 sq.m ,
    • recreation centre— 4 347 sq.m
