VLADIVOSTOK, November 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Primorye regional prosecutor’s office has begun to check the observance of the rights of students when they are accommodated in the new hostel of Far Eastern Federal University on Russky Island.
The inquiry is launched following the reports that most of the campus facilities are not officially accepted for the use, and construction work is continuing in some of the buildings, as university students already reside in the campus, the Primorye prosecutor's senior aide Yelena Telegina told Itar-Tass on Friday.
After the checking, if there are reasons, decisions will be taken on prosecutor response measures, she said.
About 2,000 students reside in the campus on the island at present. The university was planned to move to the new site right after the end of the APEC summit in September. However, most of the facilities are not accepted by the department of the Rostekhnadzor federal ecological and technological supervision service, and the process to transfer the buildings to the university has not begun yet.
Almost 100 facilities were built near the Ayaks Bay on Russky Island in the past three years. The students' town is designed to be the most modern in Russia. The first line of the campus occupies a total of more than 800,000 sq m. These are eleven comfortable hostel buildings, modern buildings for studies, laboratories, an oceanarium of the Far Eastern branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences to be used jointly with the university for scientific and educational purposes, a technopark, a student centre, sport facilities and exhibition and concert halls. Some of the buildings, including the laboratory building and the ocenarium, are still under construction.
During the APEC summit in September this year, the study buildings of the new campus were used as offices of world media reporters, a press centre, delegations' headquarters and so on.
