The Building is in one bus stop from the metro (underground) station and is on the same trolleybus line with the Faculty of Medicine.

Main Building of Lomonosov Moscow State University is beautiful composition located in central part of university campus. The Building is world famous for its exceptional architecture and size. It is the largest and tallest university building in the world. In addition to the Main Dormitory, the building houses faculties, administrative offices, a bank, dry cleaning service, laundry, hair-styling salon, library, food-marts, household stores, bookstores, gymnasiums, swimming pool, repair services and travel agencies. The living arrangements are among the best on campus. The hostel includes 5000 rooms for students and guests of the University.

Safety The Main University campus is completely isolated from the distractions of the city. It is fenced in on all sides and patrolled by internal security systems. In addition, every gateway into the campus and every building on campus is monitored by Safety Officers. The residence hall contains a security guard at the entrance and a safety attendant on each floor. Every resident is issued an identification card, which has to be presented to the security guard.

Crime rate in Moscow is similar to most major cities in Europe, the United States and Canada. Using good judgement, caution and some basic "big city" sense such as walking in small groups, using a money belt, letting others know where you are and not travelling late at night will greatly reduce the risk of being singled out. Moscow has a large police force (militcia) that is very visible. In addition, the Organising Committee representatives are available in case of an emergency.
