Are masks mandatory on campus?
Absolutely! Please wear a mask covering your mouth and nose at all times.
What about vaccination?
HSE students can get free COVID-19 shots (with Russian vaccines) at HSE University Pokrovka campus. Select a convenient slot in your student account: lk.hse.ru.
Hurry! The number of slots is limited.
International students can also get vaccinated for a fee at a number of Moscow outpatient clinics or at Luzhniki vaccination centre. More information at mos.ru
What should I do if I feel ill or have been in contact with somebody who has COVID-19?
- If you feel ill, stay at home (or in your dorm room), call a doctor and notify your programme manager
- If you have been in contact with somebody who has COVID-19, you need to self-isolate for 14 days and notify your study office. Information about your status will be forwarded to Moscow Government Task Force and to Rospotrebnadzor (Moscow Health and Safety Office). Your electronic ID badge will be blocked for the duration of self-isolation and you will not be able to enter HSE University buildings. Your programme's study office will arrange distance learning for you.
