Muriel: My sister and I live in a house next to a big river. It is a very big house: there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen a big hall and an enormous garden with lots of trees and a small lake. We even have a boat and I often go sailing along the river. It is lovely and quiet. I don’t like living in noisy cities. That is why I moved to this house.

IV. Student’s Accommodation

Moving away from home to study in higher education is an exciting time in life. There are new friends to be made, new places to discover, and the chance to develop many new interests. An important part of the process is finding somewhere to live. Opportunities for students to live in University accommodation are better at Belarusian – Russian University than most other Universities in Belarus have. All undergraduates are guaranteed a place at University Halls of Residence. There are three Halls of Residence located not far from the center of Mogilev.

The accommodation is of a good standard, well-equipped and heated, and above all it is provided at a reasonable cost. It consists of shared study-bedrooms with shared bathrooms and there are shared kitchen facilities, where meals can be cooked.

Furniture includes beds, chairs, desks, built-in wardrobes, and book shelves. A catering service is available in dining-rooms, or snack-bars in the Halls. Each room has beds, a desk, a wardrobe and chairs. Bed linen is provided by the Hall. The Halls also have common rooms, a launderette, telephone facilities, gyms and a 24-hour portering service.

Halls are mixed gender and are close to libraries, shops and bus and railway station. Hall may differ in character, but the real attraction lies in the friendliness and stimulus of a congenial community.
