The project of the new UrFU campus was presented

Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region Evgeny Kuyvashev presented the project of the new campus of the Ural Federal University (UrFU) at the strategic meeting of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia in Skolkovo.

The main core of the future college town is being built at the moment as the venue of the 2023 FISU World University Games Village. After the Games are over UrFU will receive 8,5 thousand living spaces in dormitories and three contemporary university buildings equipped with a robust infrastructure for studies, leisure, and sports.

Building the new campus will allow the region to cultivate a contemporary educational environment by integrating project-based and interdisciplinary learning and to form multifunctional teams. Ultimately, this will significantly increase the number of scientific discoveries for industrial purposes, - said Evgeny Kuyvashev.

University infrastructure will improve not only in the Sverdlovsk Region. No less than five sites for modern campuses will be allocated in the regions of Russia already in August.
