Moscow is the capital, the most populous city, and the most populous federal subject of Russia. The city is a major political, economic, cultural, religious, financial, educational, and transportation centre of Russia and the world, a global city. Moscow is the most populous city on the continent of Europe and the seventh largest city proper in the world, a megacity. The population of Moscow (as of 1 January 2010) is 10,562,099.

It is located by the Moskva River in the Central Federal District, in the European part of Russia. Moscow sits on the junction of three geological platforms. Historically, it was the capital of the former Soviet Union, Russian Empire (for three years in 1728–30), the Tsardom of Russia, and the Grand Duchy of Moscow. It is the site of the Moscow Kremlin, one of the World Heritage Sites in the city, which serves as the residence of the President of Russia. The Russian parliament (the State Duma and the Federation Council) and the Government of Russia also sit in Moscow.

Moscow is a major economic centre. It is home to many scientific and educational institutions, as well as numerous sport facilities. It possesses a complex transport system that includes four international airports, nine railroad terminals, and the world's second busiest (after Tokyo) metro system which is famous for its architecture and artwork. Its metro is the busiest single-operator subway in the world.

Moscow remains the educational center of Russia and many countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America. There are 222 institutes of higher education, including 60 state universities & 90 colleges. Some of these offer a wide-spectrum of programs, but most are centered around a specific field. This is a hold-over from the days of the USSR, when Sovietwide there were only a handful of wide-spectrum "universities" and a large number of narrow-specialization "institutes" (mostly in Moscow & St.Petersburg). Moscow offers some of the best business/management, science, & arts schools in the world. Moscow is also a popular destination for foreign students.

Twelve-storeyed hostel block of corridor layout was built in 1963. Common areas, including, kitchens, toilet and shower rooms, all designed according to the standards which were current more than half a century ago. Each floor houses about 40 students. The guys had to prepare meals in tiny kitchen of 7 square meters. Each floor featured only three toilets, that was positively inconvenient. Last refurbishment here was almost 40 years ago, back in 1977. 

The University management strives to keep on improving the living conditions of nonresident student community. Five years ago the worn and obsolete equipment of bathroom units was replaced. However, cosmetic repairs have only temporary effect. The need for major repair of the hostel is overdue. Upon the end of academic year, when students are leaving for home to mama, the allocated huge non-budgetary funds – 100 million rubles (app. $2 million) to repair the hostel are to be drawn. While many universities put on hold or curtail the social projects, First MSMU invest in the future – in the quality of students’ life and studying.   

eptember 1 will meet those returning from summer vacation with completely different dwelling. The redevelopment offers “swelling” of kitchen area from 7 meters to 30, new shower rooms with state-of-the-art equipment, sex-specified toilets. New fire alarm system ensures safety of residence, obsolete and dangerous gas cookers will be replaced by electric ones.

o add the comfort for future doctors a new laundry room is also provided, saving from annoyance about operability of worn washer and availability of laundry powder. The new laundry is loaded with some really hi-tech features. The machine itself sends an SMS, as soon as the washing session is finished. So, that’s no need to waste time monitoring the process. Broadband Internet and digital television will eliminate problems with both the studies and having a good time off. The neighbourhood of the building, featuring a bike parking with dozens of slots, will be thoroughly landscaped. 
By September the gym will be also refurbished: volleyball, tennis, badminton, bodybuilding, cardioapps... Let alone proper showers and lockers – all conditions to practice healthy lifestyle. 
The hostel is quite convenient for people with mobility handicaps. The first three floors of the building equipped with special ramps and elevators are fairly disabled-friendly. Everything conceivable has been done to create virtually comfortable barrier-free environment. 
But the transformations are not limited to repair works in premises. All renovated rooms and common areas will be equipped with new furniture and equipment. By the way, the hostel amenities will cost the University 25 million rubles (app. half a million dollars). While strolling around the Rector instructed to allot some ground floor premises for the Student Council to enable extensive sociability.
