years to solve the problem of places shortage in dormitories by moving students
to hotels and dormitories of other universities of Tomsk, as well as helping
them to rent apartments. In October, specialists completed repair works in a
building on Krylova Street, 12, where it was planned to place a hotel for 200
beds for students studying in the university.

as a hotel. Why? Since students will not only live here permanently, we can use
it for patients who come from other regions within the framework of the export
of medical services", – the university rector Olga Kobyakova told
reporters at the opening.
