The majority of students of our faculty reside in Residence Hall № 7. The purpose of this article is to dispel your doubts and to prove that living in the “semerka” will not cause you any difficulties!
The characteristic trait of a phystech is the ability to solve your own problems, and life in the dormitory is one of the steps that you have to take in order to acquire this skill. Additionally, here you will get a rich experience in dealing with people, which will be a great asset to you in the future. Do not be intimidated by the fact that you now have to wash your own socks and cook your own food, because every adult has to do that. You will not be alone in the battle for good living conditions – you can always count on the help of your peers and senior students, even if you are not close friends. Do not be shy in asking for advice –students at MIPT and at the Department Faculty of Control and Applied Mathematics are kind and receptive. Commandant of the “semerka” Nina Viacheslavovna and castellan Raisa Afanasievna will provide you with invaluable assistance. You will meet them when you move into the dormitory.
A very important fact: there is no known case of a single person who was not satisfied with the quality of the food. This means that each person makes his or her own life decisions. Certainly, eating healthily is a serious issue, but it could be easily solved. First of all, we have lots of dining halls where you can have a great meal for 50-60 rubles. Second, these dining halls should not become your main source of food – this can become somewhat taxing on both your wallet and your health. For parents: if your future student has an idea about how to cook pasta, grains and potatoes, and how to make tea as well– you do not need to worry about him or her! The rest will be learned here. There are no problems with grocery shopping – nearby there are several stores, and also the Dolgoprudny market, and two train stops away there is a shopping center.
Even if you are not from Moscow, calls to home can be easily made from a phone center that is located near campus. Sometimes using a cellphone can be even cheaper.
There is a laundry room at the dormitory where you can pick up your clean laundry, a reading room for studying, a dining hall, a shower room that is open daily during convenient hours, and on each floor there are two kitchens with electric stoves. There is no need to have your own bed sheets – you can get these from the castellan, the bed sheets are changed once every two weeks. The only thing you will need for your room is a fridge – you can either bring your own or buy it from the senior students who are moving out.
Young men will not have any trouble finding friends who share their interests – the majority of the students living at the “semerka” are male. What could be more difficult for them is keeping their room in order.
There are few females at MIPT, which is why they are treated with heightened attention and respect. However, a female student at MIPT is not a rarity and they do not feel out of place here.
To sum up, it is necessary to say the following:
1) You will not have any problem with food even if your cooking skills are minimal;
2) You can always count on the advice and cooperation of you peers;
3) Living in “semerka” is cozy and comfortable and, it should be noted that it is best to pick roommates that have similar interests and living habits in advance.
Good luck with your exams, and we eagerlyawait your arrival at our faculty and at our dormitory!
