With a Russian family

To avoid any settlement problems in the Dormitory and to make your arrival and stay in St. Petersburg more comfortable and pleasant we are offering you an alternative accommodation which we can fully guarantee - one of our host families. Most of the families live near or not very far from the university, at Vasilievsky Ostrov. It is a large district, and the part where the University is situated belongs to the city centre. We have long-established contacts with several Russian families who have proved to be hospitable, friendly, and reliable. The families are chosen taking into account personal qualities as well as housing conditions. They provide all necessary facilities and a separate room for a student. Specific conditions of your accommodation with a host family are agreed upon in advance (via e-mail).

The living conditions in a family.

Obligatory services given to the students for basic fee:

  • separate room;
  • meals (breakfast+supper) if it is foreseen be the accommodation outline;
  • change linen and towels;
  • use of kitchen only in the bounds of agreement with the hostess.

According to the agreement with the hostess plus for the extra fee (pre-payment):

  • laundry;
  • use of everyday machines (washing machine, refrigerator, TV etc.)
  • international phone calls.

Please, note that you have guests only with the hostess permission and agreement.

Rented apartment

The rent depends on the location and the conveniences there are and includes a fee to the real estate agency. An apartment with one or two rooms now costs from $300 and higher (the agent's commissions - 100% of a monthly rate - is not included).
We regret to say it is hardly possible to rent an apartment without you being in St.Petersburg: first, you will need to have a look at an apartment and decide if it is suitable, and second, the rent and agency fee must be paid immediately before occupying.
We would like to offer you homestay, dormitory accommodation just for the first days of your stay in St.Petersburg and find an apartment in about a week after your arrival. When you are here, our representative can contact an agency and help you rent an apartment. You will be able to have a look at apartments and choose the most suitable.
In case we find an apartment without an agency by the time of your arrival, we will inform you immediately.

At a hotel

The cost of a room depends on the quality of the hotel. We need to know what is preferable. Please make your choice so that we can reserve a room for you.
We hope it will be possible to arrange accommodation for you in accordance with your request.
