Student Buddies

Dear students! Welcome to Tomsk State University!    


We are international student buddies from the volunteer organization “TSU Online” working for you to feel at home in Tomsk. If you have any questions about life in Russia (culture, weather, food etc.), Tomsk places of interest and recreation, we will answer them. We assist international students in a wide range of everyday matters. Students can get advice and practical help with a variety of services including housing, medical attention and information on local events.


We also arrange different activities throughout the year, ranging from Russian Speaking Club and Language Exchange to trips and outdoor activities.
