The Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) campus is considered the best in Russia and one of the best in the world. No Russian universities, including the Moscow and St. Petersburg State Universities, have educational facilities like this.
The speed and scale of the construction was unprecedented and was comparable, perhaps, only to the
The construction was launched in 2007. In less than four years, educational and laboratory facilities, office buildings, and dormitories emerged on the unreclaimed shore of Ajax Bay. Simultaneously, bridges connecting Russky (Russian) Island to the city of Vladivostok were built.
In addition, students can now enjoy a large recreational area with parks, squares, fountains, numerous sports fields, tennis courts, and a stadium. This jewel of a campus is a quay that is open to students and all residents of Vladivostok. However, to access the campus, one must present a valid campus ID or obtain a visitor’s card.
In 2013, all units of the university moved from mainland Vladivostok to Russian Island, and so new student life began. Visiting the Far Eastern Federal University, alumni, whose student years fell on hard years of crisis and Perestroika, recall the cold auditoriums of the alma mater (then — The Far Eastern State University). They are happy it’s all in the past and that today’s young people will be learning in a vibrant and intellectually stimulating environment.
