Students wearing national costumes put a message to the future residents to the time capsule. «Our university started in 1960 from just a few hundred students from 47 countries. Today RUDN is 30,000 students from 154 countries, 8,000 of which are residents of the dorms. We are sure that the new dorm will broaden the boarders and help more people discover the world in one university», - read President of the Campus student board Guisse Kalidu.

The building will be constructed on the area 867,6 sq.m. and will perfectly blend into the environment creating a positive image of student life. There will be specialized rooms for disabled people – for 7 people on the 1st floor and 10 people on the 2nd.
