Ural Federal University

Ural Federal University is one of the top ranked scientific centers in Russia, carrying out research in natural, technical, social sciences, the humanities, and economics. It has announced the construction of a new campus in Shartash (Yekaterinburg). 

Rector of the Ural Federal University and the head of the region gave a start to the construction of the university campus. They laid the first symbolic brick of the building of Research and Education Center with the name "Information systems and technologies".

230 hectares of land were allocated for the new project, where the first object of the future Technopolis: Research and Education Center will appear. The total area of the premises makes 69,000 square meters including a hotel, family and student dormitories, a sports complex and a store.

The Research and Education Center will open its doors to two thousand students, masters and PhD students and listeners. Later there will appear a high-tech industrial park "University".

In fact, it is impossible to realize this project only with the help of regional budget. Thus, funds will be also formed by the federal budget and private investors. UFU is one of the 9 universities in Russia having ‘federal’ status that enables it to get additional funding from the federal government.

Information technologies are one of the four priorities of the Ural Federal University. That is why the construction of the new campus has started from Research and Education Center "Information systems and technologies".

At the moment, everyone has a possibility to show some creativity and take part in the competition for giving names to the streets, boulevards and squares of the future campus in Shartash.  Later this autumn another contest will start for development of conceptual design of a new university building that will appear in the center of Yekaterinburg.
