Partially, educational buildings are located on the main land, yet the core of university is on Russky Island. In order to get to FEFU one shall cross the Russky Bridge, which length is 3100 m.

The vast territory of the educational institution is the location of numerous educational buildings, hotels (dormitories), medical center and waterfront promenade. The build-up territory is 200 ha; the construction area of estates – 500,000 m².

Campus dormitories provide accommodation to 11 000 students and faculty members.

The Northern group of hotel type (dormitories), which includes 5 buildings of the first type (closer to waterfront) and 3 buildings of the second type (closer to the outer road bend); the Southern cluster (dormitories) consists of 3 buildings.

Educational buildings are located in the campus center: humanities building and building of natural sciences. There is an eleven-story Student center for student unions and organizations between them. This center has conference-halls that seat 900 people, all necessary services, including shops, clubs, and cafes. To the left of the main building there are the sports block, including several swimming pools, tennis courts and various sports grounds for athletics.
