Hello Ito-
Welcome to Moscow and to the forum. I hope all goes well with your medical studies- but finding somewhere to live is the first priority! Why don't you have a look at "The Basics" section:

Good luck!

Hi Ito, welcome to the forum. Don't they provide you hostel from your University ?

Last year and years before that, hostel (which is nearby the classes) are given to seniors (2nd, 3rd 4th year). But since the directorial board changed (during summer)... the dean is giving priority to the newcomers. Before I went home for summer I thought I was going to get a room. Arrived Moscow just to find out that my application has been rejected *shrug*

Try to talk to babushkas at nearby buildings, it CAN be more effective than browsing the Net.
Which reason they shown while rejecting your claim?

btw, if you are looking for a room and room mate, there is a special section in the forum as well.

And there can appear new and new offers!

Try and talk to your KOMENDANT "Комендант" (hostel warden) if not ask your close seniors, which will sure work out if not why don't you ask for one in Pushkin institute ?
