International students have an access to all RSSU facilities, including one of the Russia's largest academic libraries, free Wi-Fi students’ coworking spaces, e-learning facilities, the sports center with swimming pool, medical center and much more.
The main building of RSSU has a quite exciting history closely connected to the Communist party of USSR. It was occupied by International Lenin School in the 1930s. Its main goal was to develop disciplined and reliable political cadres for assignment in Communist Parties all over the world.
The Communist International (Comintern) was based in the building for 5 years and was devoted to the promotion of the idea of world communism and the struggle against the bourgeoisie class. Some famous personalities such as Georgi Dimitrov, Wilhelm Pieck, and Walter Ulbricht worked here.
The Marx-Engels-Lenin Institute moved to the building in 1960. It was a library and archive used as a research center, where also some works of Marxist doctrine were published. After the collapse of the USSR, the campus was rented, then in 2003, it became the property of RSSU.
Four RSSU dormitories in Moscow provide accommodation for international and Russian students, enabling them to experience diverse cultures through cross-cultural communication on a daily basis.
International students can enjoy playing sports or working out in the up-to-date fitness center located on campus. In addition, there is an indoor swimming pool that can be used regularly with a monthly membership.
Every department possesses its own scientific library which is specialized in order to help students with their studies. RSSU main campus also includes Electronic Social Library, providing the access to University Data System and other important resources.
RSSU operates its own Cultural Center where students, professors, and staff members have the opportunity to realize their creative potential.
