Faculties of National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” “Chemical Faculty”:
The residence halls are conveniently located just a few metro stops from the main academic building campus. MISIS provides its students with comfortable accommodations within four residence halls, which are collectively referred to as the “Metallurgist” campus area. The residence halls are within walking distance from the Belyaevo (Беляево) metro station, which is on the same line (officially called the “Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line,” but more commonly referred to as the “Orange Line” because this is its color on the Moscow Metropolitan maps) where the main academic buildings are located. This makes it a fast and easy trip for students to reach the main academic buildings (Leninsky prospect, “Oktyabrskaya” (Октябрьская) metro station).
Located in Moscow’s green area next to one of Moscow’s largest parks (Bitsa Park) and the Troparyovo recreation area, the residence halls are home to nearly 2600 undergraduate and graduate students from Russia and other countries.
Students share furnished rooms with Russian and international students and have access to a variety of leisure facilities. There is a bathroom on each floor and each room has wired Internet access.
Students have access to computer labs, laundry rooms, a recreation center, and a swimming pool, as well as a café. There is also a cafeteria located within the complex where many of the students dine. If you prefer to cook for yourself, there are kitchen facilities on each floor and there are several grocery stores located nearby.
Moscow is the capital of Russia, the largest city in the country and Europe, and one of the largest cities in the world. Moscow refers to global cities having a great influence on the world because of its high economic level and population. It is the main transport hub of Russia, its political, economic, cultural, and scientific center.
Moscow is located in the center of the European part of Russia, between the rivers Oka and Volga. The climate is moderate continental: heavy frosts and extreme heat are rare. The average temperature in January – minus 7.2 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 20.4 degrees Celsius.
The city has the status of a separate federal subject of the Russian Federation. It is the smallest federal subject by land area.
The name of the city as well as the names of many other cities around the world, is bound with the name of the river it is standing on (the Moskva River). The river was called this way long before the settlement appeared. It is unknown who named it and what this name means. There are two main versions: Finnio-Ugric and Slavic.
According to the first one, the word “Moskva” is derived from the Finno-Ugric language group which means “river-bear”. The Slavic theory points to the stem “mosk” denoting “marshy” or “moisture, liquid, marshland, dampness”.
The city is surrounded by 6 airports, 9 railway stations, and 3 river ports. Moscow has developed a fabulous metro (subway) system. The first stations were built in 1935.
Moscow is the largest Russian financial center. About half of Russian banks are located in Moscow. Most of the largest companies are registered and have head offices in Moscow, although their manufactures might be located thousands of km from the city.
The city is the most important center of retail sales in Russia. Moscow represents about 30% of all commodities sold in Russia.
Moscow is also a large scientific center. There are a lot of scientific research institutes carrying out research in many branches, such as nuclear power, microelectronics, space exploration and other promising directions.
