All our exchange students are warmly welcome in our students dormitory, situated close to the metro station Vasileostrovskaya (Василеостровская).
Our students meet international students at the airport Pulkovo to help them to reach the dormitory by public transport. There are city buses number 39, 39Ex and Minivan Taxi number K39 running from 5:25 to 0:20 between the airport and the nearest metro station Moskovskaya (Московская) (bus ticket: 40 RUB, metro ticket: 45 RUB), please see here. From Moskovskaya metro station (2nd blue line) you go to Newskiy Prospect metro station and then change for the 3rd (green) line and go to Vasileostrovskaya (Василеостровская) metro station. You go out from the metro, turn to the left and go about 500 m along the Sredny prospect. The address of the dormitory is Sredny prospect VO, building 51 (Средний проспект Васильевского острова, дом 51), it is about 7 minutes on foot from the metro station:
Other possibility to go to the dormitory from the airport is a taxi service. You can pay for your taxi by credit card/cash at the Taxi Pulkovo counter or by cash to the driver at the end of a ride. If you need one, please ask a receipt at the Pulkovo Taxi counter. Preliminary cost is 1500 RUB.
If you arrive to the dormitory at night time (from 01.00 to 07.00), please touch the bell button on the door to enter and tell your name (there is 24 hours security service at the dormitory).
The required documents for check-in are following:
- Pass (original)
- 2 photos of 3 x 4 cm size (for issuing a dormitory pass)
- Medical certificates (chest radiography and drug test).
To get a room it is enough to give your pass and photos at the reception (so if you have no required medical certificates at the moment of check-in, you will get a room), but please bring them within first week after arrival.
Incoming students can make these medical tests before arrival to St. Petersburg, in their home country and bring us them translated into Russian. Or it is also possible to make the aforementioned tests in St. Petersburg within a week after arrival. If needed, you can be supported by our students (they show you the way to the
medical centers). If you need such a support, please let us know in advance!
