VLADIVOSTOK, September 11 (Itar-Tass) – Municipal authorities of Vladivostok are about to launch sightseeing tours to the newly built campus of the Far-Eastern Federal University located on Russky Island.
Over the past weekend, the campus was the venue of a summit conference of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum /APEC/. It provided accommodation to official delegation about twenty countries of the Pacific rim.
Vladimir Miklushevsky, the governor of the Primorsky territory of which Vladivostok is the administrative center, told a process meeting Tuesday the city residents and guests will have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the campus, to take a stroll along the embankment and in the park, and to visit the building of the international press center and a local restaurant as of the beginning of next week,
“It’s important to give an opportunity to anyone living in the Primorsky territory to see with their own eyes the place where the APEC summit was held,” Miklushevsky said.
While the construction works were in progress, admittance to the territory was given only to construction workers and the auxiliary personnel.
Almost a hundred facilities were built over a period of three years along the coastline of Ayaks bay on Russky Island. They include an up-to-date campus and a communal area with the total floor space of more than 800,000 square meters.
The campus has eleven dormitories, as well as advanced academic buildings and laboratories. It occupies the top position in the ratings among the Russian university campuses.
The facility also houses an aquarium of the Far-Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. It will be used jointly by the Academy institutes and the university for research and educational purposes.
The university’s compound also has a technology park, sports facilities, exhibition and concert halls.
A number of buildings have already been commissioned for full-scale operation and after the completion of a cleanup the transfer of university departments and students to Russky island will begin.
In the meantime, another part of buildings are still in the phase of construction.
