RENTING A ROOM OR APARTMENT IN THE CITY
For various reasons you may decide to rent a room or apartment in the city.
First, we should warn you that renting a room or apartment is more expensive than living in the residence hall. The rent would depend on the area of the city, the type of room or apartment, and a number of other factors. It is almost always going to be higher than the cost of the residence hall. Sharing a room with friends may somewhat reduce this cost, but you are likely to be further away from services provided in or near the University residence hall. Additionally, for a person who barely speaks Russian and does not live with a native speaker, such living outside the residence hall may be a real challenge. Be careful and think twice – do you speak Russian well enough or do you have a native speaker friend who will be living with you? If yes, International Student Services Centre or your responsible person can help you in searching for a room or apartment and in concluding the rental agreement.
