There are 9 buildings, housing administrative offices and study rooms, 4 dormitories, an up-to-date sports complex, catering and household facilities.

The university prides itself on its sports and fitness complex which comprises a unique sports hall equipped with the latest facilities including a large electronic display panel.

Besides there are two more large multi-purpose sports halls, a well-equipped fitness room, a complex site for outdoor sports, a stadium with a 400-meter long running track and a football field, skiing and cycling lodges.

In Youth Palace (which is one of the buildings of our university), mass cultural events are regularly held such as “Student Spring” festival, “Premier” and “Miss and Mister of USPTU” competitions.

Foreign students of our University are constant members of the Russian language contests and various folk holidays, in their turn they familiarize Russian students with their culture and traditions.

USPTU offers housing for all categories of students. Each faculty has its own dormitory, where Russian and foreign students stay together. It helps foreign students to study the Russian language. There are three basic types of university housing such as self-catering rooms with shared kitchens, bathrooms and other communal areas and self-catering apartments, mostly in units of 2 or 3 study-bedrooms with a shared kitchen and bathrooms. There are also self-contained apartments with bedrooms and kitchens in them. The kitchens have full kitchen facilities, but there are many places on campus to buy meals and snacks.
